Skillfully wending words, sounds, and images, author/illustrator, Colonel Korne paints poetic pictures that catapult readers into a witty world of rhymes. Whether weaving a web of intrigue in “Spider, Spider,” rhapsodizing reminiscently in “Memories of Grandpa,” or the provocative pun in “Honeydew, Honeydew,” he hits the heart, not with sap, but with a refreshing twist that draws in everyone who picks up this unique volume. Children’s poetry? Hardly, but make no mistake. Kids love the Colonel. Adults will chuckle at the double entendres resplendent in the Colonel’s work and identify with the trials that vex characters like Emily Lou, the hippo ballerina. All ages will relish the artwork that ranges from realism to cartoon sketches. Educators will appreciate the natural use of literary devices: “The Butterfly” as a picture poem, the synonyms in “I Lost My Underwear Today”, as well as wonderful examples of irony, alliteration, and metaphor replete in this masterfully written work. With live readings of every poem by the author in this electronic version.

Tried several different things to upload binary to iTunes Connect… all unsuccessful. Did learn alot during the whole process. Submitted a contact post to Apple with a screen shot well before the deadline. Worked on this site, the deadline is now past. I hope Apple considers our circumstances here!
We will let you know when the App is available for purchase on the Apple App Store – Regards the Colonel.
