About the Author
Ted Scheu (rhymes with "poetry guy") is a celebrated (by his dog) children's poet from Middlebury, Vermont, who considers himself to be a really big kid with gray hair--say 8 or 9 years old max. As a result, he captures kids' voices in verse better than just about any poet for kids on the planet. Ted is also a teacher who visits over 60 schools around the world each year helping kids find their own poetic voices. Ted's poems are published in over a dozen and a half books in the US and UK--mostly in anthologies from Philomel and Meadowbrook Press in the US and Macmillan, Scholastic, and Hodder in the UK. His own collections (Ted calls them his "Giggle Quadrilogy") include a book of family poems called "I Froze My Mother," another of school verse called "I Tickled My Teachers" a sports poem collection called "I Threw My Brother Out," and now, just out, a new book of schools poems for a slightly younger audience called “Now I Know My ZBCs,” all by Young Poets' Press. These four collections each contain roughly 60 hilariously honest poems about life as seen through the eyes of kids, and they are illustrated breathtakingly by full-page black and white photos of kids, all taken by Peter Lourie of Weybridge, VT. Ted's joys in life (besides writing and reading poems) are playing in the outdoors with family and friends, riding his bike, like any kid his age, and traveling the world, which he does a lot as a visiting author.
