A couple of weeks ago I wrote a review over at Tales From The Nightstand. I was inspired to write it after the author of the book Justin Matott visited the boys school. They both came home talking excitedly about him. Especially Connor. He thought Justin was such a funny and neat guy. He apparently told some funny stories and talks a lot about the trials of being a kid... Well, after Terra posted my review someone reading the blog actually knew the author. He is local. He commented on my review! I thought that was pretty exciting! The boys thought it was cool too. He has written some great kids books. (I think a couple of grownup books too). You can check them out at his web site http://www.justinmatott.com/. He has written many great books. The book I wrote the review on is When I was A Boy I dreamed.
THE CONTEST - GROSS FOOD POEM
Jason Matott is running a contest. To see details you can visit Jason's blog HERE. Or, visit Tales From the Nightstand here.
Basically, he's looking for poems of gross food combinations to use in Book 4 of the Gabe Series .
Here is my first poem.
I like pickles dipped in honey
I know it may sound funny
It's kind of sweet and sour
but..... I could eat them on the hour
This poem is a collaboration between Connor and I... it goes like this
There are oysters in my jello
I think I'm feeling yellow
Wait, maybe I will try it
Oh my, I may start a riot
deep down in my tummy
wait, It's kind of yummy!
There are Mushrooms in my ice cream
I think I'm having a bad dream
I will use some chocolate syrup
I hear it's popular in Europe
Let's see how it taste
It would be such a waste
ick... the mushrooms are slimey
I will leave them out next timey
