Poetry Friday: I Saw Esau

After celebrating it's twenty year anniversary with Maurice Sendak's illustrations, how about a poem for Poetry Friday from the "Nonsense" section of I Saw Esau. Enjoy!

I was in the garden
A-picking of the peas.
I busted out a-laughing
To hear the chickens sneeze.

Oh, I'll be at ALA, signing in the HarperCollins' booth, #508, Saturday, June 28th, at 10 am. Stop by and say hey! We can chat about our love for readertotz!

Sarah Dessen would appreciate this, because of the chickens. :)
