DMC: "Robert's Pet" by Dianne Moritz
Robert brought his pet to school.
He said the pet was new.
But when he sauntered into class,
the kids and I screamed, "EW!"
A sewer rat!
Fierce bond between the boy and rat,
swelled our hearts with beauty.
Everybody fell in love, and...
thought the rat a cutie!

Click HERE to read this month's interview with Carol Hinz, Editorial Director of Millbrook Press and Carolrhoda Books, divisions of Lerner Publishing Group. Her challenge this month is to write a poem that finds beauty in something that is not usually considered beautiful.
Post your poems on our November 2017 padlet. While some contributions will be featured as daily ditties this month, all contributions will be included in a wrap-up celebration on Friday, November 24th. One lucky participant will win a copy of The Sun Played Hide-and-Seek: A Personification Story by Brian P. Cleary, illustrated by Carol Crimmins, and published by Millbrook Press earlier this year.
