Troy Thompson\'s Excellent Poetry Book

Troy Thompson's Excellent Poetry Book

(1998)
A collection of poems by

 
Troy Thompson's Excellent Peotry Book follows Troy Thompson, a Grade 6 student, in his efforts to understand the art of peotry (poetry). It's a rocky but endlessly amusing road for Troy, as he stumbles over the Japanese form of 'Haiku', the ballad, the limerick and the sonnet. At the end of the year, Troy's poetry has well and truly improved and his respect for Ms Kranke, his teacher, has grown too! Troy Thompson's Excellent Peotry Book is a highly entertaining introduction to poetry for school children, which can be read as a narrative as well as an easy-to-follow classroom guide for teachers. It is divided into assignments for the reader to follow and participate in and is peppered by Troy's doodles and margin comments to his teacher, sure to produce many laughs. Ms Kranke obviously has quite a soft spot for this cheeky young student, and encourages him on his way, whether writing of his love for his school sweetheart, Kylie, or revealing the heroic and moving death of his policeman father.
