In this case, Lewis and Janeczko took turns writing five-line . by J. Patrick Lewis & Paul B. Janeczko & illustrated by Gary Lippincott

In this case, Lewis and Janeczko took turns writing five-line verses that take readers on both a temporal and physical journey. From the banks of a country creek through a series of encounters among small-town citizens, to the eponymous birds, the poems illuminate a single day. Realistic paintings in muted colors show the world from a variety of perspectives and help readers find connections between verses that follow one another as well as those that appear farther apart.

Two poetry masters create a slice of American life, in renga form. This portrait of a day in the life of an American village is told in an ancient poetic form known as the renga (meaning "linked verse"), in which one poet writes a verse and another poet responds to that. Then the first poet adds another verse, and so on. Each verse links somehow with the one preceding it but not with the others. This means that each new verse takes the story in a completely different direction as each poet comes up with a clever way to connect the new verse. Birds on a Wire, a Parents' Choice and IRA Teachers' Choice book, is a random romp around town.
