I'll give it one extra star for the illustrations, but I was starting to find it a little tiresome to read through some of the stories and poems in here. In any case, I don't think it makes for a great read aloud, but it might be enjoyed better in private. It's somewhat silly but not all that funny. All in all there were probably three or four poems that I enjoyed. My son may have been less discriminate, but even he declared there were some he really didn't care for. For a slightly similar read, but one that's a heck of a lot more rollicky, more gross and more funny, I'd recommend [b:Vile Verses|255452|Vile Verses|Roald Dahl|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1386924906s/255452.jpg|247577]. It would probably appeal to mostly the same audience but it's just all around better. ( )
