I Must Go Down to the Beach Again by Karen Jo Shapiro( )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Adults who remember the original poems well enough to appreciate the light parodies may be the prime audience for this collection of 23 illustrated verses. But some kids will like the silliness, and with adult encouragement, may want to find the originals. Whether it's the take on Lord Byron's So We'll Go No More A-Roving (So our noses we'll be blowing / And we'll cough until we wheeze), or the parody of Ben Jonson's Song, to Cecilia (Kick at me only with your feet, / And I will start to whine), the singing rhythms and rhymes show the fun of poetry, especially when the verses are read aloud. The favorite may be Soccer Land, an action-packed poem about a ball game, based on a song from A Midsummer Night's Dream. The black-and- white illustrations extend the nonsense. --Hazel Rochman, Booklist
