  1. I am so sorry I arrived here too late to enter the contest. I am a Patron of Reading in England (UK) and Blucey looks like a fabulous read (such a sweet cover). I have added it to my Goodreads shelf.

  2. Seeing these Haikus makes me want to try one but I’m just not that talented as a poet! lol LOVE IT! 🙂 Thanks for sharing in the Kid Lit Blog Hop.

    • The good thing about haikus is that they don’t need to rhyme – but counting syllables is harder than it sounds! I suppose I first came across them seven or so years ago, but it’s only this year I’ve been writing them regularly, and they improve with practice, I think – I hope!
      They also feature in one chapter in the Talent Seekers.

  3. Jemima, loved your Haiku! My students and I call it Finger Poetry. Thanks for sharing. Cheryl, Hop Hostess
