This is a great book of poems that, for the most part, explain all of the things in life that annoy or frustrate you. For example, The Scary-Hair Fairy explains why you always have bad hair on school picture day. The Puzzle-Piece Eater explains why there is always one piece, usually the last piece, of the puzzle missing. The Snack Smasher explains why the chips or pretzels at the bottom the the bag are always smashed to crumbs. This is a fabulous book! ( )

Poems that deal with made-up characters that cause messes and have bad intentions. A silly, clever and funny collection that are very entertaining for one and all. I have always wondered who is to blame for my missing puzzle pieces..it is nice to finally know! ( )

With a name like that, how could you not want to pick this up and browse through it. The kids picked this out based on the title alone, so I was surprised when we cracked it open and found it was poems. Luckily that was a delightful surprise! In The Snack Smasher and Other Reasons Why it's Not My Fault the author reveals the why to question that plague almost all children...why is my hair a disaster on picture day, why is there inevitably one puzzle missing from the box, and why the pretzels at the bottom are always crushed to pieces. This is a fun read and great for kids to practice reading out loud...these would make fun oral presentations for kids working on memorizing because of the way the poems are divided, it's a good way to challenge kids to figure out how it's meant to be read aloud. Readers here won't just be delighted with the poems, the illustrations are quite interesting too, really helping to bring to life the villains and mischievous creatures that lurk within these pages! The Snack Smasher would made an ideal read aloud, or as stated before...a fine project for memorization and oral presentation. I give this 5 stars for being plain old fun with great illustrations and a even a chance to expand young readers vocabulary! ( )

First words
Don't open these pages expecting to find
anyone generous, friendly, or kind,
for only the vilest of villains dwell here--
roughnecks whose ruthless intentions are clear;
scoundrels and scalawags given to crime;
dastardly deed dooers all in their prime.
