Here's to your spin; your soapsud song—
your rumble and whrl and twirl along
swish swish swish
swirl and spin
a tub of tumbling safety pins.

Rebecca Kai Dotlich pays poetic tribute to things that shake or slap, whoosh or whirl, swirl or spill in this captivating book of verse. With charming illustrations by Karen Dugan, these twenty-three poems sparkle with clever imagery and crackle with dazzling wordplay. Here's a remarkable collection by a gifted poet to set young imaginations spinning.
