Once again, Margaret McNamara sets her playful, child-friendly story in the classroom, and this time, poetry-from metaphors to acrostics to haiku-is the name of the game. The focus here is on Elinor, whose confidence falters as she tries to write something "perfect" for Poem in Your Pocket Day and impress a visiting poet. G. Brian Karas's accessible, adorable illustrations add to the fun.
