When last we saw Poodle the chicken and his best friends What? and Sidney (a beagle and a snail, respectively), they had just mastered the eight parts of speech (Level One of MCT's four-level grammar instruction), and they were heading across a vast blue plain toward the world of words. Now the horizon shows a mountain range with a bright star above it, holding the promise of new knowledge: the five parts of the sentence (Level Two). But getting to the top of the mountain is a treacherous endeavor because a frightening monster keeps buffeting them with wind and hurling snow at them and doing what he can to stop their progress.
This fun adventure tale, told in unmetered rhyme, is pure creative genius, celebrating both the power of words and the power of friendship and camaraderie and a willingness to extend those qualities to others. Michael is brilliant at word play, and artist Christopher Tice has brought the story to life with dazzling creativity. just wait until you hear the audio of Michael reading the story himself—a feat made possible by the QR code on each spread of two pages. Children will treasure Poodle and the Blue Mountain Monster as a luminous sequel to Poodle Knows What?, all the while learning grammar in the most delightful way.
