My Dog Is A Carrot by John Hegley
A delightful melange of quirky poems by one of this country's most popular poets. my doggie don't wear glasses; so they're lying when they say; a dog looks like its owner; aren't they; John Hegley's doggie may not wear glasses, but then she is a carrot. Enter this celebrated poet's weird, witty and bespectacled world and meet Grandma with her filthy glasses, the organic leek who has learned how to speak, the octopus who gets a nasty shocktopus, the man who drew his cornflakes and a whole cast of other interesting characters. Surprising, serious, and sometimes just plain surprising, this is a collection of poems even your dog might like. Unless, of course, your dog is a carrot too.
