Forgive Me, I Meant to Do It: false apology poems by Gail Carson Levine

80 p. HarperCollins Publisher, March, 2012. 978--6178256. (Purchased)

40 short, mostly humorous, mostly irreverent false apology poems modeled after William Carlos Williams' "This is Just to Say." I laughed out loud at quite a few; groaned over some and scratched my head over others. Kids will have fun with these.

Poems plus black and white illustrations may beg comparison to Shel Silverstein, but these flights of fancy lean more towards Quentin Blake (thankfully) with a dash of Boynton.
