Mad Martha here…while reflecting on my Odes to Authors, a brilliant idea flashed through my head. A stupendous, marvellous idea that hurled itself out from the depths of my brain, begging to find audience! A Haiku Review….a book review in seventeen syllables! Inconceivable! Flushed with the anticipation of my wondrous invention, I slipped to the keyboard to let my unique idea find voice….only to find that others – nay, multitudes of others – had already had this idea. Swathes of blogs and websites make it their business to peddle this idea from moment to moment. I was not as unique as I thought.
Yet I would not allow my spirit to be crushed!
And so I present to you a haiku review of Jon Klassen’s modern classics: I Want My Hat Back and This is Not My Hat.
for crimes against millinery.
Justice has been served.
