AUDIENCE APPEAL: LOW
Landry writes short, simplistic poems about different sports. The childish drawings are as one-dimensional as the poetry. There are least some nods to poetic conventions – with rhyming mostly. It feels though as if a second grade class could have written and illustrated this book.
