This would be a fun book for National Poetry Month month to get people talking about how they think about poems and poetry. The narrative and illustrations are fun, and the endpapers, fish spelling out letters, are delightful!

Arthur asks friends, neighbors, and family members what a poem is, and gets a different definition from each--all in beautiful figurative language ("A poem is when you hear the heartbeat of a stone").
