(2011 Newberry Honor Winner Dark Emperor and Other Poems of the Night)

    Lisa, how fun! I often make my kids just look at each other and smile, in a few minutes they’re cracking up and moving on. But poetry… I could check two things off my list with that one! Oh and I vote it’s because you made the vapor rub! That always happens when I try to do something extra healthy!
