Even though this book is technically aimed at young kids and early teenagers, I found it to be rather comical myself. It has just the sense of humor that I can't help but laugh at, and I love the injected use of satire and wit. I immediately read more of the author's work after this one, and the raw talent is definitely there. ( )

It’s Slapstick is a collection of nine cheeky poems by author Tom Skinner. The end of each poem includes an author’s note, sometimes informative, mostly something that will just make you smile and groan at the pun, something my 13-year-old self would have loved (which is around the target age, so that works out just fine). There are also cute little sketches accompanying each poem. I cannot find an illustrator credit anywhere in the e-book, so I’m guessing that Skinner did the sketches himself. My favorite poem is “Don’t Worry, Be Appy,” with the following as the author’s note: “Despite the fact the author has never swiped anything, except extra chocolates from the bowl, he is very appy.” Told you I’m a sucker for puns!
