Poetry Friday: The 14 Fibs of Gregory K. and Fog


This has been reading week in the library.  Once a month students in graders third through fifth spend the time reading and trying out new books.

This week, I got to read Greg Pincus’ book, The 14 Fibs of Gregory K.  Have you read it?  You should!  I could relate to the main character Greg who dislikes math yet loves poetry.  The themes of friendship, perseverance, and learning to stand up for what you believe in is woven into the book so naturally plus it is funny!

A fourth grade boy wasn’t happy with the choice of books in book boxes so I passed the book to  him to read today.  He checked it out after class.

I will be suggesting it for read aloud when school returns from winter break.

The book inspired me to write a fib about the fog which until yesterday was a fixture in the Pacific Northwest sky.

lingers in the mist.
He quivers, lighting one candle.

Happy Friday! Winter break begins!

  2. Both you and April have given this book a thumbs-up–I’m putting it on my to-read list! Thanks for the review and the poem–I especially like the line: Quiet/lingers in the mist.

  3. I’ll have to order this one for my daughter who reads aloud to her 4th grade class regularly. Thanks for the recommendation, Jone. Have a peaceful and relaxing break!
