Poetry Friday: Comets, Stars, the Moon, and Mars

Subtitled Space Poems and Paintings by Douglas Florian, this book is a delight to look at as well as to read. The poems are short and clever, the pages full of wonderful cutouts, paintings and collages. Florian includes a good glossary full of information and a bibliography for further reading. Here's a sample from the poem on Pluto:

Pluto was a planet.
Pluto was admired.
Pluto was a planet.
Till one day it got fired.

Reserve this book here.
