Books by Angela Matteson

Written by Jane Yolen and Rebecca Kai Dotlich with illustrations by Angela Matteson - Children's 5-9, Humor, Poetry

Poets Jane Yolen and Rebecca Kai Dotlich take 14 Mother-Goose rhymes that have been enjoyed by generations of children and twist them in ways sure to delight modern kids. These poem pairs feature wildly different voices and perspectives, and Angela Matteson’s stunning illustrations add further hilarious details. So while Humpty Dumpty’s classmate explains why he’s sitting in time-out again, Matteson’s art shows Humpty Dumpty as a daredevil skateboarder teetering on a wall. The poems have strong rhythm and rhyme, making GRUMBLES FROM THE TOWN a terrific read-aloud.
