About the Book

**Description from Amazon: A collection of wacky, whimsical poems about books and all the treasures they contain–honored with the Minnesota Book Award; NCTE Notable; Bank Street Best Books; Librarians’ Choice; Honor Book – Gelett Burgess Center for Creative Expression; White Ravens book; and Nerdy Book Award.

Laura Purdie Salas, the acclaimed author of Stampede!, is back with another collection of wild and weird, wacky and winsome poems about all the magic to be found on a single bookshelf. In BookSpeak!, each poem gives voice to a group that seldom gets a voice . . . the books themselves! Characters plead for sequels, book jackets strut their stuff, and we get a sneak peek at the raucous parties in the aisles when all the lights go out at the bookstore!Illustrator Josée Bisaillon’s mixture of collage, drawings, and digital montage presents page after page of richly colored spreads filled with action and charm. Together, Salas and Bisaillon deliver a unique collection brimming with ideas as much about spines and dust jackets as they are about adventure and imagination.
