This collection of poems features a number of pairings. The first in each pairing is by one of a number of poets and the second is a response from J. Patrick Lewis. Each short-and-sweet response adds something either funny or thoughtful. The soft, playful, and colourful illustrations by Johanna Wright add so much to an already-lovely collection. Basically, this is an excellent gateway into poetry... the poems are pleasant and satisfying.
