April 2023 Book Birthday
April is National Poetry Month. What better way to celebrate than a book of silly poems featuring all sorts of animals wearing all sorts of pants?! ANIMALS IN PANTS written by debut author Suzy Levinson, illustrated by Kristen & Kevin Howdeshell, and published by Cameron Kids debuts tomorrow (April 11, 2023)!
"What? You’ve never seen animals in pants? A dog in yoga pants, a goat in overalls, a yak in slacks? Animals in Pants presents a parade of impeccable poems about animals wearing perfectly pressed pants."
Suzy is an incredible poet featured in many magazines, journals, and poetry anthologies. Kirkus Reviews says: “With sure command of metrics as well as excellent comic timing, Levinson dishes out pithy observations on animals." (Spider Pants is sooo funny!)
And let's chat about the husband and wife illustration duo of Kristen & Kevin Howdeshell. ANIMALS IN PANTS is said to be "irreverently illustrated." I would add the illustrations are hilarious and hip! The expressions on these animal faces crack me up!
Suzy has generously offered to giveaway a copy of ANIMALS IN PANTS. Please go to my Twitter to enter the giveaway and Instagram for an extra chance at winning this beautiful book!
Why not match some animals IN PANTS with some animals...ON YOUR FRIDGE?
