John Grandits has done a great job as his book of abstract poems hypnotize me to follow the text. I enjoy his interesting ways of presenting his poems that make me want to follow the way his text fills up the page in a weird pattern. Although I'm not much of a poetry book reader, Grandits has done a good job of keeping me hooked through most of his books. ( )

The concrete poems in this book would appeal to older kids, because of the themes for the poems and the creative presentation. The poems aren’t overflowing with figurative language. They don’t rhyme. Most of them read like conversational prose, but they are very entertaining.

Wonderful poetry book that children can easily relate to. Design is a biggie for this book, no two pages are remotely similar. Book is put together well and is aesthetically pleasing. Trials and tribulations of Rob's family...

Really funny and unique format to the poetry.The concrete style adds a lot of character. The poems are very relatable.
