It's not often that such elegantly clever poetry leads to delighted smiles and even full-out belly laughs. When it does, it's truly cause for celebration! With topics ranging from "heavy metal" armadillos to a sheep on "a ship on the Amazon" who is reminded to keep his "white wooly pajamazon," this deliciously jubilant potluck of poetry invites children to dig right in. Truly a tribute to words, poetry, and art, this most memorable "meal" is sure to have eager bookworms coming back for more! J. Patrick Lewis has served up a bountiful feast of splendid works for children. His previous children's poetry includes the "quick-on-the-draw wordplay"* and "inspired nonsense" of Ridicholas Nicholas and A Hippopotamusn't, praised as a "collection of marvelous light verse as fresh as spring"** (both Dial). —*Publishers Weekly **The Horn Book
