Fishing Without A Hook

RRP $154.95

Poems on love, dreams and solitude are a dime a dozen but it is as rare as finding a jewel in the sand to chance upon poems about one's vocation...
Poet Nancy Puglisi finds employment a subject worthy of poetic expression. Her poems are a means to explore the journey of one's life while earning a living and building a meaningful existence. "Fishing without a Hook" examines attitudes, routines and relationships within the workplace. Join the author as she describes the challenges of creating experiences at work that can be engaging, principled and fulfilling.
"Fishing without a Hook" provides an eclectic collection of poems focused on the philosophical concepts of compassionate heart, open mind and good intention which Nancy has embraced and applied to her work in the office and in the classroom. Replete with wisdom, this thought provoking anthology prompts readers to glean insight into their own "on the job dynamics" while contemplating the author's highs and lows with her work related encounters.

Gone Fishing

RRP $10.99

Nine-year-old Sam loves fishing with his dad. So when his pesky little sister, Lucy, horns in on their fishing trip, he's none too pleased: "Where's my stringer? / Something's wrong! / The princess doll does not belong!" All ends well in this winsome book of poems-each labelled with its proper poetic form, from quatrain to tercet. Together the poems build a dawn-to-dusk story of a father-son bond, of sibling harmony lost and found-and most of all, of delicious anticipation. Charming line drawings animate the poetry with humour and drama, and the extensive Poet's Tackle Box at the end makes this the perfect primer to hook aspiring poets of all ages. AGES: 6-9 AUTHOR: Tamera Wissinger was inspired to write this novel-in-verse after writing "Night Crawlers," a poem that stemmed from her fun childhood memories of night crawler hunting with her dad before fishing trips. She is a graduate of Hamline University's MFA Writing for Children program. This is her first book. Matthew Cordell and his brother Eric were all-around best buds. They grew up in a small town in South Carolina, where his family would often take fishing trips together. Matthew is the illustrator of Like Pickle Juice on a Cookie by Julie Sternberg and Justin Case by Rachel Vail. Colour illustrations
