This vibrant and exciting collection of Twitter poetry comes from a debut author. Strictly adhering to the 140 characters or less rule applied on Twitter, Sylvester takes the reader to worlds that are both funny and sad, touching, and terrifying. Witness the worlds of prom queens and bin men, of Sherlock Holmes and Noddy, of Glasgow and Colditz, of extinct bees and Catherine wheels. Go read it. Then go tweet about it. There's also a funny and smart introduction from Rebecca Woodhead, Miss Twitter UK, and one of Twitter's most powerful women. Richard Todd's illustrations in black and white will mesmerize, and the poetry will take you to another world. . . and then another. . . and then another. . .
