Book Spine Poetry 2013

April is National Poetry Month. You may have noticed I have been reviewing a lot of poetry in the past few weeks, but I've also been writing some. Inspired by the gallery Travis Jonker puts together every year, I have created a new set of book spine poems for 2013. Pictures of each poem are below and underneath each photo is the way I imagine the poem is punctuated when I read it. At the end of the post is a bibliography of the books used in the poems.

The normal kid. 
One crazy summer, 
Fall is not easy, 
The long Winter, 
and then it's spring...
Time's up! 
Thirteen plus one:
Odder than ever 

 Middle school is worse than meatloaf
Things are gonna get ugly 
Mercy on these teenage chimps

Following Grandfather,
Lulu walks the dogs
Where the red fern grows.

When the library lights go out...
Harriet the Spy,
Ramona and her mother,
the mouse and the motorcycle
Mrs. Noodlekugel, 
The Cat in the Hat - 
Everybody, everybody, 
let the games begin!  

Ajmera, Maya. Let the Games Begin!
Cleary, Beverly. The Mouse and the Motorcycle
Cleary, Beverly. Ramona and Her Mother 
Coville, Bruce. Odder Than Ever 
Fitzhugh, Louise. Harriet the Spy
Myracle, Lauren. Thirteen
Myracle, Lauren. Thirteen Plus One
Pinkwater, Daniel. Mrs. Noodlekugel
Rawls, Wilson. Where the Red Fern Grows
Wells, Rosemary. Following Grandfather
