In the vein of Shel Silverstein and Jack Prelutsky, this illustrated book of humorous poems will guarantee giggles!
Artist, poet, and award-winning author Douglas Florian has written a volume of his newest and best comic poems. Divided into different "aisles" each poem features his critically acclaimed wit and personality-filled drawings, capturing the comedy of everyday life. Meander through the different aisles-such as "Jests & Jives" or "Tons of Puns"-to find everything from laugh-out-loud limericks to frenetic free verse. Like Where the Sidewalk Ends, this collection is sure to be a fun classroom staple and a huge school and library hit.
"Echoes of Shel Silverstein's brand of wit and whimsy reverberate in Florian's 170 poems. The kid-friendly selections creatively capture the quotidian comings and goings of youngsters in humorous, forward-thinking verse."-School Library Journal
