520 Collection of stories told in verse. The most exciting and
enjoyable stories ever told in verse, illustrated
throughout in full color and beautifully presented.
Sumptuously illustrated by four different artists, each
selection begins with a quote from one of today's favorite
authors - including J.K. Rowling, Avi, David Almond,
Philip Pullman, Cornelia Funke, and so many others who
were each eager to share their own personal enthusiasm for
these special stories. From the subversive wit of Roald
Dahl's wicked retelling of Goldilocks to the magical
wordplay of Lewis Carroll's "Jabberwocky," Once Upon a
Poem is both broad in scope and delightful in tone. Read
along to the exhilarating rhythm of Longfellow's "Paul
Revere's Ride," Tony Mitton's rip-roaring rap version of
"Prince Theseus," Clement Moore's "A Visit From St.
Nicholas," and many, many more. With a foreword by award-
