A new collection of poetry for kids from Coretta Scott King Book Award winner Eloise Greenfield!
Thinker isn't just an average puppy--he's a poet. So is his owner, Jace. Together, they turn the world around them into verse.
There's just one problem: Thinker has to keep quiet in public, and he can't go to school with Jace. That is, until Pets' Day. But when Thinker is allowed into the classroom at last, he finds it hard to keep his true identity a secret.
Praise for Thinker:
"Coretta Scott King Award-winner Greenfield sensitively conveys Jace's anxiety about being perceived as different, and his realization that being true to one's self is the best bet--for kids and dog poets, too."--Publishers Weekly
