Here’s an exclusive sneak peek at Calef Brown’s new book, Hypnotize a Tiger – a collection of nonsense poetry accompanied by his delightful illustrations.
If you’re not familiar with Calef Brown, here’s a little introduction. Calef is a Poet, an illustrator, a character designer and a children’s book creator. He has written and illustrated Polkabots and Octopus Slacks, Hallowilloween, Dutch Sneakers and Flea Keepers, and Flamingos on the Roof, which was a #1 New York Times Bestseller.
This new book is the first longer-format, middle-grade poetry collection by Calef, his others have been in the picture book form.
I’ve been a huge fan of Calef Brown for a long time. Recently we became acquainted through the magic of twitter and Calef did this spectacular magpie for me.
He very kindly arranged for an advanced copy of his new book to be sent across the Atlantic Ocean for me. I’m very grateful.
