The Poetry Foundation announced Tuesday that "Revenge of the Lunch Ladies" author Kenn Nesbitt will be its next children's poet laureate, a position the foundation created in 2006 to recognize that "children have a natural receptivity to poetry and are its most appreciative audience." The two-year appointment comes with a $25,000 prize.
