How do I find an agent interested in representing stories in verse?

Q: I write children’s stories in verse. They have an Uncle Remus aire. I need an agent who handles this type manuscript, but I’m finding that a difficult task. How do I find one?

I don’t think most agents are that specific. They generally accept books they like and think they can sell. If you know other poets, you could ask whom they use, or check the acknowledgements of books you feel are similar to see if any agents are credited. 1:2/04
