This week I join the Poetry Friday Roundup hosted by the talented poet-teacher-author, Mary Lee Hahn, as she congratulates the amazing poet-children's author on the release of her dystopian verse novel, D-39: A Robodog's Journey. From Mary Lee's perspective, this book will surely engage middle school readers.
