CHILDREN’S TITLES

Awful Alvin and Other Peculiar Poems by Stephen Brooke


Some children are as good as gold,

As sweet as sugar, I am told;

Like little angels, some will say,

But Alvin never was that way.


So begins Stephen Brooke's collection of poems for young readers, fully illustrated with the author's pen and ink art. Join Alvin in discovering the friend he needed, help Lynn and Pete decide what might be found down a really deep hole, or teach the Frog King how to sing.
