Because I Could Not Stop My Bike Original Poems

Excerpted from

Because I Could Not Stop My Bike
Karen Jo Shapiro

Karen Jo Shapiro's lighthearted take on some of the most celebrated poems from English and American literature will bring a smile to readers everywhere. Twenty-six hilarious poems fill the pages of Because I Could Not Stop My Bike, and many of them should sound familiar – if just a little off. From a little dog's version of Shakespeare to the fractured homage to Emily Dickinson of the title poem, these verses will have you laughing faster than you can say "iambic pentameter." With Matt Faulkner's witty illustrations, this is one poetry book that's pure fun.
