again and again

A quirkily varied layout, scribbly-scrabbly illustrations, and unusual glimpses at everyday experiences mark the sixth entry in James Stevenson's splendid corn book collection (Popcorn, Candy Corn, Sweet Corn, etc.). Stevenson's free-form verses, as down-to-earth as the title implies, contemplate gritty roadside snowbanks, a not-so-scared opossum, a conversation between forks and spoons, and a bottle of ketchup on the dinner table.

buffalo, and sheep.
