From the Publisher ...
are always the best tasting ones
—“punk poets” by Sarah Isbell
"If you enjoy vivid imagery, exotic tastes, clever rhymes, interesting themes,
and poignantly satisfying, or disturbing, thoughts, pick up this book! From
forging the creative brand-new genre of “Poem Noir” to the final poem “Poetic
Inspiration’s” perfectly penned lines, Sarah Isbell’s Psychotic Kittens delivers
all the soul-dripping inspiration and psychosis-induced madness that we’ve
come to expect from her writing. Poems of swell kittens and inkwells bloodred,
of punk poets and frog kings, to give voice to victims of Alzheimer’s and to
explore the naked truths of “hot pancakes, with sticky maple syrup, chunks
of peanut butter, fresh chopped walnuts, and banana’s a’ la mode.” From the
bone echo to orangutans of hope, clever craftsmanship compels Isbell’s poem
store of a book beyond an exquisite mastery of the simple rhyme and into
the realm of “Dude, you’ve so got to read this poem.” Adopt your very own
psychotic kitten by taking this book home and sharing it with your friends.
Bunny ears not included."

The Book of Green GooThe Book Of Green Goo: A Lesson In Being Snotty! A Dr. Seuss like adventure of wild imagination and important childhood lessons!
The Book of Green Goo
by Sarah Isbell
The Book of Green Goo: A Lesson in Being Snotty! is a cleverly layered Dr. Seuss---style children's book the author crafted for her own twin daughters, Abby and Bella. It is a lesson in being caring and compassionate, not panicking and letting fear-filled imagination run wild, but instead remaining calm and using your brain to discover good fact-based solutions to overcome danger. And, on another more adult level, this book is also a lesson in learning to be accepting of others who are sick, disabled, or merely different. This fun-filled fantasy tale exploring the dangers of letting one's imagination run too wild, presents an excellent opportunity for healthy family discussions about taking proper health precautions at school and at home to prevent cold/flu, finding non-fear-based solutions to serious concerns, acceptance, tolerance, compassion, and encouraging your child's development and use of an active healthy imagination. (28 pages).

The Broken Whale
The Broken Whale
by Sarah Isbell
Do you live to eat poems in your mouth too? In The Broken Whale, Sarah E. Isbell sets forth a stunning collection of poetry and lyrical works designed to spark your curiosity and begin a thought-provoking examination of the subjects discussed with exquisitely masterful wordplay. "Poetry," as the author explains, "is a vehicle for self-exploration, to gather wisdom and further our imaginations, while humor provides an antidote to the stress in our lives. Poetry is not the truth, but we can see the truth of our reflection in it, if done well. The same pool of vision can also provide a reflection of our society and culture, and the times in which the poet lives." (106 pages).
Officially Released by Tate Publishing on February 17, 2015.
