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-
       winning author Kevin Crossley-Holland, this stunning 
       collection offers fifteen of the most exciting and 
       enjoyable stories ever told in verse. The poems are 
       sumptuously illustrated by four different artists, and

       favorite authors-including J.K. Rowling, Avi, Philip 
       Pullman, Cornelia Funke, and many others who are eager to
