Time for a picture book giveaway! This week, enter to win Feeding the Flying Fanellis: And Other Poems from a Circus Chef, written by award-winning author Kate Hosford and illustrated by award-winning illustrator Cosei Kawa. This playful poetry book is perfect for poetry units and bedtime reading alike. 

Find out what keeps these performers juggling, balancing, and entertaining—meals prepared by their tireless chef! Poems from this jolly cook give a glimpse of his unusual perspective, from delightful to downright funny. Enjoy a front-row seat for this whimsical look at circus life that just might make you hungry!

What do you feed a trapeze family to keep them up in the air? A fire eater with a penchant for hot sauce? Or a lion with a gourmet palate? How do you satisfy a sweet-toothed human cannonball who’s outgrowing his cannon?
