Last week, I chatted here with author Chris Harris about I’m Just No Good at Rhyming: And Other Nonsense for Mischievous Kids and Immature Grown-Ups (Little, Brown, September 2017), illustrated by Lane Smith.

I’m following up today with some art — and poetry — from the book.



The first half of “Alphabet Book (By the Laziest Artist in the World)”

“… Dad’s breath is warm. I feel his sighs. / The night is still. I close my eyes. …”
