This book of poems is full of delightful poems ranging from jests and jives, limericks, to free verse, this book has a little something for everyone. This book is a collection of silly nonsense and includes topics kids care about such as talents, avoiding homework, friendship and so much more. The illustrator uses black ink to delivery pictures that capture exactly what the poem is trying to convey to the reader. Lovely poem book that should be shared over and over again. ( )

I really liked this poetry book for a couple different reasons. I liked this book because the author breaks it up into chapters that maintain the silly context of the poems, such as chapter 11 is entitled miles of smiles and chapter 3 is entitled funny bones and belly laughs. I also liked this poetry book because even though the poems have silly context, they still have great meanings behind them, such as the poem entitled “Zero” that reads, “Zero is nothing. Empty and bare. But when zeros kissed: infinity ‘s there.” The overall message of this book is to offer poems with silly laughs, but also to get the reader to think deeper. ( )
