There's a turtle named Jaws, a dinosaur canary, an alien playing Spaceball, and a no-show tooth fairy. A buffalo's in the library chomping on the books, and a princess has karate skills that rival her good looks. These characters and many more are found in this rambunctious and irresistible collection of poems that look at our world through a child's wide eyes.

Brod Bagert, a favorite in classrooms throughout the country, and Tedd Arnold, creator of the beloved Parts and More Parts, are friends who have happily teamed up-with hilarious, inspired results.
