Dennis Lee’s Melvis and Elvis has landed

Melvis and Elvis coverThe wait is over, Dennis Lee fans. Today marks the official release date of Lee’s first collection of original poems for children in more than a decade. Melvis and Elvis (HarperCollins Canada) features illustrations by Jeremy Tankard, the author-illustrator of Grumpy Bird, Boo Hoo Bird (2007 and 2009, respectively, both Scholastic Canada), and the forthcoming chapter book, Clover the Uncredible.

The new collection follows on the heels of the 40th-anniversary board-book edition of Lee’s classic poem “Alligator Pie,” which was released last fall.
