I Invited a Dragon to Dinner and Other Poems to Make You Laugh Out Loud illustrated by Chris L. Demarest (NY: Philomel Books, 2002)
I have to give this book credit for truth in advertising -- I did indeed laugh out loud when I read it.
This collection of poems was the result (according to the jacket copy) of a nationwide contest to find the best new writers for children. Each poem was illustrated with the fun, colorful illustrations of Chris Demarest. Mr. Demarest, who lives in Meriden, has taken a new direction with his recent work.
