Thinker: My Puppy Poet and Me
Eloise Greenfield, illus. Ehsan Abdollahi, London: Tiny Owl, hb. 978 1 9103 2833 0, 2018, £9.99, 34pp.
Poetry, Illustrated book, 8-10 years
The poems are pitched at just the right reading and emotional level for a seven-year-old like Jace and move from free verse to rap. Ehsan Abdollahi’s illustrations express perfectly the relationship between boy and puppy and the warm and lively atmosphere of their African-American family.
