Chicago-based Book review editor, Barbara Egel, has posted a nice review of my book, The Trickster: Poems for Very Clever Children & Silly Adults, in the new summer/fall 2019 edition of Light.
She goes on to write in the review: “Enhanced by full-page, full-color drawings that leap off the page and into your face (the pickle in a bathtub is not to be missed), this book is what Klawitter does best: it’s a bucket of silliness that hides occasional well-taught lessons that go down easily.
Klawitter is right to offer it to children and adults. Who doesn’t need to hear “Haters” right about now?
Some folks are good at hating.
It’s all they’ve ever known.
They learned it from their parents
And practiced it at home.
I’m not sure why they do it,
But those who feel compelled
To hate those who are different
May really hate themselves.”
