Authors Out Loud: Chris Harris – I’m Just No Good at Rhyming

Chris Harris is the author of the New York Times bestselling I’m Just No Good at Rhyming: and Other Nonsense for Mischievous Kids and Immature Grown-Ups.

This impressive debut of children’s poetry has been making the rounds here at Cook Library and quickly become a staff favorite, provoking unhealthy amounts of laugh out loud moments. We can’t recommend it enough, especially if you’re a fan of Shel Silverstein (and really who isn’t) or Monty Python. This collection is a delightful read for kids and adults alike.

We cover a lot of ground in this conversation including why poetry was the right fit for Harris, where his sense of humor comes from, writing Top 10 lists for David Letterman, collaborating with illustrator Lane Smith, and of course, what he’s been reading lately.
