105 Ways to Give a Book

Poetry Friday: A Contest, But Not Mine

Can I use my Poetry Friday spot to highlight the last day in Adam Rex’s Kaiju Haiku Contest? Today is the LAST DAY to submit entries. The Grand prize for a kid includes an illustration of the winning haiku, a signed copy of Frankenstein Takes the Cake, and a Frankenstein Makes a Sandwich lunchbox. Adults or kid runners-up will receive a signed copy of Frankenstein Takes the Cake with his or her haiku illustrated on the title page. The judges are ready to look over the entries, but there isn’t much time left, so think up something quick.

I forgot to mention this to my daughter, who loves Adam Rex’s The True Meaning of Smekday. In fact, she named her new fish Koobish, after the creature in the book. She’s going to kill me. Though, now that I think of it, she still has this afternoon, and she works best under deadline. Just like her mom. If either of us think of something, I’ll update this post with our entry.

Poetry Friday is hosted today by Becky’s Book Reviews. I suspect she’ll have lots links to actual poems for you to read.

By the way, thanks to Kelly for introducing me to online sand art. Until I saw it I didn’t realize I could waste even more time online and avoid cleaning the house.

Oh, good!!!! Someone else is doing pointless sand art while they could be chasing dust bunnies!

I love the sound, even.

Hey thanks MoReader! I hadn't heard about this contest but I thought something up real quick and just entered under the wire.

I took Smekday home from the library today and am looking forward to diving into it this weekend since I just finished my midterm for the grad course. A little reward...

LOL Tadmack I am doing sand art to avoid homework and I passed it on to all my Diigo contacts at school.
