Here are two books that parody familiar poems.
HALLOWEEN NIGHT by Marjorie Dennis Murray with illustrations by Brandon Dorman (Greenwillow 2010) uses "A Visit from St. Nicolas" to tell of a wonderful evening buffet cooked up by the denizens of Halloween including zombies, bats, witches,, and ghosts. Unfortunately, the more human trick or treaters do not appreciate this fine cuisine. I particularly love how the illustrations have sort of an eerie glow about them. <294>
THE BICKLEBYS' BIRDBATH by Andre Perry with illustrations by Roberta Angaramo (Atheneum 2010) uses "The House that Jack Built" as its basis for parody. The story opens with a mailman falling into the Bicklebys' birdbath. How he got there is the story that unfolds a spread at a time. It involves crows and a moose, and a goose among other things. Lots of hilarity ensue in pictures and in text. <295>
