Fans of the silly and outlandish will laugh out loud at this offbeat collection of poems, mischievously illustrated by the poet himself.
my doggie don't wear glasses
so they're lying when they say
a dog looks like its owner
John Hegley's doggie may not wear glasses, but then, she is a carrot. Enter this celebrated poet's weird, witty, and bespectacled world and meet the organic leek who has learned how to speak, the octopus who gets a nasty shocktopus, the boy who pretends his TV is a little dog, and a whole cast of other interesting characters. Surprising, serious, and sometimes just plain strange, this is a collection of poems even your dog will love.
