ACHUKA Book of the Day Wed 1 July 2020
An collection of 50 original poems about the moon.
The poems come in a variety forms… short poems and long ones, silly poems and serious ones. There are haiku and sonnets, acrostics and shapes. Conlon uses kennings and metaphors and slang. And he mixes up the established rhythms that you might find in older poems with the rhythms he hears in his head when his son smiles at him.
Schwarz’s illustrations are apposite and atmospheric.
