Up Verses Down

Poems, Paintings, and Serious Nonsense

Written and Illustrated by Calef Brown

Up Verses Down : Poems, Paintings, and Serious Nonsense is a wonderful book of silly poetry. It has beautiful illustrations to entice the reader and fun, rhythmic rhyming to twist your tongue. The vocabulary in this book makes it better suited for advanced readers, but the pictures give it a younger feel. One of the most interesting things about this book is the different meter types found in the poems, some are more traditional while others are more artistic. The poems in the book are about all kinds of crazy things including food, animals, sleeping, people, and “junk.” This book is definitely worth a read!
