Marshall lives in Charlotte, NC, with his beautiful (and tolerant) wife and three teenage kids. His family includes dogs, cats and fish. They had bunnies and gerbils and lizards for a while. They also had 3 chickens but a weasel ate them. In addition to writing Children's poetry, Marshall putters at his workbench a lot, plays the violin occasionally, runs marathons sometimes and shaves his head weekly. He has a busy medical practice but he does not give shots to his patients. He asks his nurse to do that.

Puppydog Blues
by Marshall Silverman

Overview


Puppydog Blues is collection of humorous and whimsical, rhyming poetry that is meant for children (and adults) of any age. The poems are meant to be read aloud and enjoyed without complication. However, they also employ literary techniques such as alliteration, consonance, imagery, personification, simile, metaphor, enjambment, near-rhyme, internal rhyme, rhythm, meter, hyperbole and every other poetic device known! (See?). In other words, whether you read this at bedtime to your kids or dissect them as part of an English assignment in school, the poems in Puppydog Blues will delight. Each illustration is carefully designed to complement the text. While each poem (along with its illustration) stands on its own, look for the Bluebird that appears in each poem. Sometimes a commentator and sometimes a participant, the Bluebird is a familiar "face" that welcomes you from one poem to the next.
