About the Author

Vikram Madan grew up in India where, despite spending his childhood rhyming and doodling, he ended up an engineer. After many years of working in the tech industry, he finally came to his senses, and here he is, having followed his heart back to rhyming and doodling again! His self-published books of funny poems The Bubble Collector and Lord of the Bubbles both won Moonbeam Awards for Children's Poetry. He lives near Seattle, Washington, with his family, two guitars, and a few pet peeves, and devotes himself to making whimsical and humorous art. Visit him at vikrammadan.com.

Reviews

β˜… A loopily meta collection of silly, interactive poetry. Madan's collection of rhymed verse lives up to its subtitle thanks to a poem with 12 numbered blanks and 12 lists of seven words or phrases each to insert, mix-and-match style, in those blanks...that equals seven-to-the-12th-power possible poems! You do the math. There is a 'cracked-concrete' poem (some of the words have fallen to the bottom of the page), a rebus chant composed entirely of pictures of Australian animals, and some poems in comic strips. The cast appears to be of many races and species. This collection will encourage several giggle-filled read-throughs. -- Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"The word that best describes this book rhymes with 'bilarious.'" -- Adam Rex, author-artist of Frankenstein Makes a Sandwich

"With rigorous rhythm and rollicking rhyme, Vikram Madan's A Hatful of Dragons delivers a vatful of laughs!" -- Douglas Florian, author-artist of Friends and Foes: Poems About Us All
