Book overview: When kids read they don’t think about getting an education, they want to have fun! “Screamers” is a delightful book of poetry that entertains children with humor while it helps them develop an ear for language. The author Kenny Penny offers up his zaniest poetry, inviting young readers to picture life as a “Big Slinky”, taste “alligator toenail stew” or read “the world’s smallest poem”. Smelly things, nutty teachers and hiccups add to the hilarity, as does the idea of “backwards pants” and having twelve toes! “Screamers” revels in the fact that kids have an enormous silly side and can never get enough of wacky ideas and crazy images. With over 225 poems and countless illustrations (all drawn by Kenny), this book is highly engaging, wildly funny, and unexpectedly heartwarming.

About the author: Kenny Penny lives in the San Francisco bay area of northern California. He writes children’s poetry, loves to run, bike, eat healthy and spend as much time in nature as possible. He has traveled all over the world, loves meeting new people and passionately encourages literacy for all the world’s children. He has donated hundreds of copies of his book to various children’s charities and cherishes reading to young children. For more information, please go to his website at www.kennypenny.com.
