    If you're an English teacher like me, then you probably like poetry. But if your students are like mine, then most of them probably don't. So what to do? Use this comic book to trick them into liking it! They won't even know it's poetry until you show them what it looks like in a column of text! (Included in the back pages with commentary and a special "How to Collaborate" piece!)

    Extensive lesson plans covering various objectives are contracted this summer with numerous teachers and curriculum writers to deliver by Sept 30, before comics ship in October. FREE AND USEFUL!
