Bigfoot Does Not Like Birthday Parties
Poet Eric Ode has created a hilarious read-aloud about the town of Mossy Pockets and the birthday party the residents throw for reluctant Bigfoot. Internal rhyme gives the growing lists of people, instruments, pies, and animals a delightful momentum. The party excitement builds until it all comes to a pie-smashing disaster.

A School Library Journal selection for

"The Diversity List: Picture, Easy, and Early Chapter Books of 2015"

"...a comical, cumulative chain of events resulting in a pie-flying catastrophe will make readers (and Bigfoot) smile. Temairik’s flat illustrative style, with pops of color, is full of visual wit—not to mention particularly diverse townsfolk. An energetic read-aloud with plenty of repetition and zest." - Kirkus Review

"...a hilarious disaster spoof tale about a gigantic birthday celebration for a huge creature who does not happen to like birthday parties. Told in brisk narrative verse. the story is brilliantly and imaginatively illustrated with a large cast of colorfully dressed human characters (all the people of Mossy Pockets) of multiple racial origins and one oversize, hairy blue crucial character whose birthday it happens to be. ...The closing picture shows a cuddly blue bigfoot hugging a little black boy and a little white girl, all three in striped party hats. 'Bigfoot Does Not Like Birthday Parties' dissolves fear in charm and humor to the delight of all young readers." - Midwest Book Review

"...well written and illustrated, fun for any kid and any parent who will likely be forced to read it again and again." - Portland Book Review

Too Many Tomatoes
Eric Ode's rollicking, rhyming garden story will have readers, tapping their toes as they count the too-many tomatoes overgrowing the garden, the building, the block ... and more!

"A musical toe-tapping story. Grandfather’s garden is popping with peas and buzzing with bees and blossoms. Barrels are bursting with a bumper tomato crop. Even after a busy farmer’s market, there’s still more for the family to share. Simple rhyming couplets flow nicely throughout. Bright, upbeat and cheerful spreads celebrate life and its bounty. VERDICT: A fun-filled tale about family and gardening, recommended for storytime and gardening units." - School Library Journal

"Ode’s pitch perfect toe-tapping rhymes and Culotta’s exuberant illustrations invite the reader to jump right in and join all the fun. The boy’s enthusiasm is positively contagious as he describes how Grandpa first planted the seeds and how excited they were when sprout after sprout came up. Together, Ode and Culotta have created a jubilant feel-good book that will elicit lots of smiles, requests for rereadings, and the inevitable cravings for tomato dishes." - Jama's Alphabet Soup

"Mater mania running wild will make for an enjoyable read aloud in your classroom. With the rhymes, you can touch on phonemic awareness. Too Many Tomatoes is also full of rich parts of speech. Vivid verbs and abundant adjectives will invigorate the pencils of young writers. If you have a plant and/or foods unit, this book needs to be a part of it. Spring is just around the corner, so celebrate the joy of keeping a garden with Too Many Tomatoes."NC Teacher Stuff

"The silly, singsong verses lend themselves well to read-aloud storytime! The simple yet charming color artwork adds just the right touch to this exuberantly playful storybook." –Midwest Book Review

Sea Star Wishes - Poems from the Coast
(From the inside cover) Experience the wonder of coastal shores in these delightful, playful poems and illustrations that bring to life a day at the beach building sand castles, tide pooling, and exploring the natural world.


A Children's Poet Laureate Book Pick of the Month

"With creatures as diverse as seagulls and moon snails, and explorations of everything from lighthouses to footprints in the sand, this lovingly-crafted collection of poems is an excellent companion for your next ocean-side visit" - The Poetry Foundation

"Twenty whimsical, lyrical, informative poems celebrate life within, on, or near the sea. Some creatures featured in the verses, such as the gull and octopus, are likely to be familiar, but others, including the limpet and geoduck, may not be. Lighthouses, ferries, and fishing are Ode's subjects as well. Easy to read, these poems mostly rhyme, and they vary in format and length. Colorful full-bleed illustrations attract the eye, give context, and complement the spirit of the selections. All in all, an engaging nautical collection." - School Library Journal

"Ode—a poet, writer, and children's performer—shares the wonders of the seashore, both natural and manmade, in a collection of 20 poems. The tone ranges from gently observant to comical, but both text and art are at their strongest during the book's more contemplative moments. A dramatically decorated stunt kite curves through the air like a swallow ("It circles/ and lunges,/ lurches,/ dives,/ climbs,/ and plunges"), and elsewhere, jellyfish rise majestically from the deep...readers, whether coastal or landlocked, should enjoy this lighthearted take on eels, geoducks, tide pool denizens, and more." - Publishers Weekly

"A day at a Northwest beach is brought to life through these poems. Topics are wide ranging. Including sea life such as barnacles, geoducks, crabs, octopus and sea lions. Also covered are beach activities such as kite flying, fishing and sand castle building and beach icons like ferries and lighthouses. Bright fun paintings capture the poems well. This is a must have for schools that are near the shores of the ocean or the Puget Sound." - Puget Sound Council for the Review of Children's Books

"This whimsical children's poetry book by Seattle-area author and singer-songwriter Ode explores the creatures that bring Northwest coastal shores and tide pools to life. With topics from sand castles to sea cucumbers, the poems, augmented by playful illustrations, highlight the wonders of the seashore, educating and entertaining young children in the process." - Alaska Airlines Magazine

When You're a Pirate Dog and Other Pirate Poems
From the smelliest of pirate dogs to the most unusual fishing exploits ever to take place on the high seas, these pages are filled with explorations of the jolliest pirate crew. Readers of all ages are invited to come on board and sail along on these lively adventures.

"This well-executed collection of swashbuckling verse features a broad cast that includes a lonely sea serpent (“It could be my manners they find unappealing./ It could be the way that I greet them./ It could be my temper, but I’ve got a feeling/ It’s mostly the fact that I eat them”); the ghost of pirate Red Eye Jack (“We’ll pilfer, swindle, lie, and curse,/ When things get bad, we’ll make them worse”), and a pirate who has been transformed into a walrus by a witch. Harris’s detailed and sea creature–studded illustrations have a touch of Steven Kellogg and Mercer Mayer, while Ode’s poems read like rambunctious tall tales. (Ages 4–7)" - Publishers Weekly

"Perfect for dramatic readings, the poems are full of rollicking rhyme and alliteration. A comic cast of patch-eyed, bulbous-nosed pirates swagger and bumble their way through illustrations exaggerated to great humorous effect. Readers will be happy to set sail with these silly seafarers." - Horn Book Guide Reviews, Fall 2012 Fall

"This enjoyably goofy, rowdy collection of verses covers pirate life from a multitude of entertaining angles. Readers meet magical creatures and a host of bumbling characters, including a pirate ghost, while also getting a chance to explore a ship and sample the cuisine: "'You best beware the biscuits, men,'/the cook called from the galley door./'They're tougher than they should have been./I dropped one, and it cracked the floor.'" The expressive cartoon illustrations have a lot of personality, exaggerating the characters to match the tone of the poetry. Full of jokes and fun, the singsong rhymes give the selections the feel of lively, sea shanties. These high-sea adventures make for comical armchair travel. (PreS-Gr 3)" School Library Journal, July 2012

Dan, the Taxi Man
"Find this book, put it on the shelf, but don't expect it to stay there long, because your child will want re-reads, often. For little musicians, future drivers, or any 2-to-5-year-old who loves fun books, “Dan, the Taxi Man” is so cute, it's hard to ignore." - Cape Cod Times

"Dan the cabbie puts pedal to the metal to pick up a rock band and get it to a gig. Written as a cumulative rhyme, the narrative barrels along just like the classic yellow cab in Culotta’s high-energy cartoon illustrations. Sporting a hip handlebar mustache and goatee and endowed with a personality as big as his seat-filling body, Dan motors through town and country settings like there’s no tomorrow. Noisy fun, with a strong beat and a narrative pattern that even younger audiences will have no trouble catching. (Picture book. 4-6)" -Kirkus Review

"This rhythmical picture book will make a great read aloud in primary classrooms because children will easily catch onto the pattern and begin to make the sounds and read along." -International Reading Association's Reading Today

"The brightly colored, energetic illustrations carry out the mod motif with mohawk hair, dreads, an afro, pierced ears, and Dan’s red handlebar mustache. As you’d expect, a rockin’ good time." - Booklist

Larry Gets Lost Under the Sea
(Co-authored with illustrator John Skewes)

At the beach with Pete and his family, Larry the lovable pup follows a crustacean toward the sea and is swept out by a wave. He dog paddles around, exploring the plant and animal life before coming face-to-face with an oceanographer who leads him on a thrilling adventure through the layers of the ocean before he’s finally reunited with his best friend, Pete, back at the beach. This fun and educational book includes a Common Core teacher’s guide.

"What a treat this book is. The story is very cute and told in rhyme. The illustrations are fun, colorful, and very well done. The story is adventuresome and the dog gets to take the reader an the adventure under the sea. What is especially nice about this book is that the author told the story for young children but included information to interest adults and older children. That information allows the older individual to pass on more to the younger child. My grandson is a bit young for this but really enjoyed it during our picture book reading time. He really enjoyed seeing Larry as he loves dogs.

An excellent book that I recommend highly and that I know I will be enjoying with grandchildren for years to come."

Rock Nocturnal (CD)
A 2015 Best CD of the Year Award - Original Songs for Kids!
A 2015 Parents' Choice Silver Honors Award winning CD!


Grab your flashlight! We've gone to the dark side with a celebration of dirt diggers and nighttime critters. Recorded at PlethoraTone Studio in Nashville, TN with some of the groovin'est players around, this album truly rocks.
 

"Singer-songwriter-author-poet Eric Ode takes listeners on a tuneful and fanciful night time tour of the garden and beyond to celebrate the rich variety of creatures that live and forage under the stars, from "Gophers in the Garden" and an acrobatic bat, to a possum in a tree and a "mole in a hole" (who loves a "shrew in the straw"). In one standout track, "Hooray for Jessie Skunk," a little skunk gets the better of a mama grizzly, an alligator in an elevator and--while scuba diving--a hungry shark. "Raccoon and the Wizard's Daughter," another highlight, puts a delightful fairy tale spin on just how raccoons came to be nocturnal foragers, wear masks and sport rings on their tails." - Parents' Choice Foundation

 

"Rock Nocturnal (is) a solid set of folky pop-rock with the occasional detour into raccoon-themed pirate chanties. The shuffling bluesy title track has a fun shout-out along chorus, and as you might expect from someone who spends a lot of time with the written word, there are a handful of songs which enjoy words as words ("Gophers in the Garden," "There's a Mole in the Hole," "Raccoon Round").  And if your kids just want a pop song, try "Look at That Acro-Bat." Rock Nocturnal to me sounds like an album recorded at least partially with the intent for use in schools and libraries, and should be popular in those venues.  Unlike many albums of that nature…it also succeeds on its own merits far from that educational context.  Recommended." -Stefan Shepherd, Zooglobble

 

"This imaginative collection of original songs addresses real-life garden challenges like “Gophers in the Garden” and veers into delightful imagery in the Irish-tinged “Raccoon and the Wizard’s Daughter.” There’s a nice range of musical styles (e.g., Stray Cats-sounding “Possibly the Possum,” twangy call-and-response in“There’s a Mole in a Hole”) with the good environmental information. This is a bouncy, fun CD saturated with Ode’s naturally positive sound. Perfect to introduce young kids to the animals of the night." - Kathy O'Connell, Kids Corner on WXPN

"It's a toss-up whether the 12 wacky cuts on this album are poems set to music or original songs with lyrics reminiscent of poets Jack Prelutsky or Shel Silverstein.  Either way, the high-energy humor and bouncy beat will tickle funny bones and set toes tapping." - Booklist, June 2005

A 2003 Parents' Choice Recommended Award Winning album!

". . . a playful jaunt to the farm where (Eric and the kids) encounter a somersaulting goat, a scruffy barn cat and Grandpa's creaky old truck ("Ooom, chugga, chugga, pop!") Along with the fun, Ode celebrates the wonder of growing things and new life." - Parents' Choice Foundation
