Here Sleeping Beauty is an insomniac, Little Red Riding Hood is a wolf and Snow White just needed a friend to tell her to be wary of strangers.

Born in Hamilton, Ontario and raised nearby in Dundas, JonArno Lawson''s most formative experiences as a child occurred in Florida which he visited for an extended stay at the age of eight.

Read from the Book

A Cock Can Crow

A cock can crow, but a crow can''t cock:
A macaw can''t caw but it sure can squawk
Let a mockingbird mock at the call of an auk
But a caw''s the law when crows talk.

Editorial Reviews

Welcome to the world of JonArno Lawson, where sound rules supreme. It''s a bizarre world, where wolves live on the moon, bears inhabit the sun and bleating lambs get stuck in traffic jams. Here Sleeping Beauty is an insomniac, Little Red Riding Hood is a wolf and Snow White just needed a friend to tell her to be wary of strangers.`In this joyfully thoughtful collection, JonArno Lawson takes verbal leaps on the springboard of nonsense, tongue-twisters, nursery rhymes, fairytales, as well as invents creatures such as solar bears and lunar foxes to delight the imagination.'' - John Agard & Grace Nichols, editors of Pumpkin Grumpkin: Nonsense Poems From Around The World
