About the Book
This tongue-in-beak tale is sure to amuse and inspire poets and animal
lovers alike.

The barnyard is going hog wild! Yo Mama Goose has her feathers full
trying to host a poetry contest without raising the rafters. Writers
are sensitive creatures; and all of the animals want to strut their
stuff, including Yo Mama herself. With tempers flaring—and noise levels
rising—Farmer and Son are sure to hear the commotion. None of the
animals can afford to horse around, and it will take a genuine artist
to bring peace back to the barn.

"High-spirited, lighthearted barnyard banter."—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"A good read-aloud for inspiring young poets of all species."—School Library Journal
