Additional Notes

From The Publisher*

Canadian kidslit legend Dennis Lee's first new children's collection in more than a decade-in collaboration with bestselling illustrator Jeremy Tankard.

Melvis the monster

And Elvis the elf

Were hunting for books

On the library shelf-

One on the carpet,

And one in a chair,

So neither could see

That the other was thereā€¦

Melvis and Elvis is classic Dennis Lee, with more than thirty new poems for fans of his beloved collections, including the perennial bestseller Alligator Pie. This irresistible blend of narrative, word play, and pure nonsense, combined with Jeremy Tankard's whimsical and energetic illustrations, will appeal to both the very young and developing readers.
