Thirteen classic poems by poets such as Robert Frost, Langston Hughes, Emily Dickinson, and David McCord are paired with parodies written by J. Patrick Lewis that honor and play off of the original poems in a range of ways. For example, Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening is paired with Stopping by Fridge on a Hungry Evening to hilarious effect, whereas the combination of Emily Dickinson’s ‘Hope – is the thing with feathers with Lewis’s ‘Grief – is the thing with tissues is profound, and both David McCord’s This Is My Rock and Lewis’s This Is My Tree hum with a sense of wonder. This playful introduction to classics will inspire imagination and wonder even as it tickles funny bones.
