Some of you saw the earlier post about Adam Rex’s kaiju haiku contest. Well, he announced the winners today, and our own lil monster got an honorable mention! How cool is that?
It occurs to me that I never shared the haikus Trevor and Gabe submitted. Trevor, it turns out, speaks in 17 syllables — while I was explaining to Gabe and Bren the rules of the contest, he said:
Dad, I know what the
important thing about horned
monsters is: the horns
A few days later, Gabe wrote:
He is big and bad
He is Frankenstein, he is
He is green and stiff
I love the homespun line “He is Frankenstein, he is” — shore nuff! I’m not the least bit proud — can you tell? Thanks, Jacqui, for pointing us to Adam Rex’s site!

What a fun contest. Would be curious how you explained the directions so that Trev happened to understand them too 🙂 Might have to check out the book from that author. Always like to find new books for our collection…
Oh, I'm pretty sure he didn't understand the rules. He wasn't writing a haiku; he was making a serious observation!
Such excitement!!! Congrats to Trev.
