Dirt Bike Is the Best! I'm Dirt Bike!
Dirt Bike is a fairly cool squirrel, according to Dirt Bike. Dirt Bike thinks he is the best at everything and isn't sure why he isn't invited to more parties. Children laugh and watch as Dirt Bike tries to make his way in a world where coolness is everything, but nothing is as cool as Mom. For ages 3-8.

Patreon is a place where lovely people like you can support my work as much or as little as you want, so that I can keep blazing into new artistic territories (and hopefully not setting too many things on fire along the way).

Derrick Brown doesn't just report from the human condition, he sings it—capturing how it
feels to be absolutely alive in poems that are simultaneously romantic, wacky, soulful, wounded and full of wonder.
Joel Lovell, The New York Times
There’s something that happens when you read Derrick Brown, a rekindling of faith in the weird, hilarious, shocking, beautiful power of words. When you read Strange Light, when you read any of his work really, or when you have the fantastic fortune to watch him perform it in person, you yourself are a bit more alive.
Eugene Mirman of Bob's Burgers and Flight of the Conchords
Derrick Brown makes the often unbearable art-form of poetry a true, unexpected joy. I think
there's a reasonable chance he is America's greatest living poet and you will enjoy his work.
