Dennis Lee is one of the best-loved children's writers in Canada. In So Cool, the author of such classics as Jelly Belly and Garbage Delight offers a spellbinding collection about the trials, tribulations and unexpected joys of growing up.
Featuring 36 remarkable poems for early teen readers, So Cool is a rollicking ride down a bumpy highway. Written with Lee's trademark wit and insight, the poems tackle matters of concern to young readers with sensitivity and wild humour. As the poems ricochet between self-doubt and swagger, nostalgia and exuberance, readers will recognize their own insecurities, fears, hopes and dreams.
Throughout, Lee's wonderful words are brought to life by a sophisticated array of illustrations from Maryann Kovalski. The result is a collection to be treasured by readers of all ages.
