Publisher's Summary

The instant New York Times best seller featured on NPR's Weekend Edition with Scott Simon! B. J. Novak (best-selling author of The Book with No Pictures) described this groundbreaking poetry collection as "smart and sweet, wild and wicked, brilliantly funny - it's everything a book for kids should be".

Lauded by critics as a worthy heir to such greats as Silverstein, Seuss, Nash, and Lear, Harris' hilarious debut molds wit and wordplay, nonsense and oxymoron, and visual and verbal sleight of hand in masterful ways that make you look at the world in a whole new wonderfully upside-down way. With enthusiastic endorsements from best-selling luminaries such as Lemony Snicket, Judith Viorst, Andrea Beaty, and many others, this entirely unique collection offers a surprise around every corner. Adding to the fun: Lane Smith, best-selling creator of beloved hits like It's a Book and The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales, has spectacularly illustrated this extraordinary collection with nearly one hundred pieces of appropriately absurd art. It's a mischievous match made in heaven!

"Ridiculous, nonsensical, peculiar, outrageous, possibly deranged - and utterly, totally, absolutely delicious. Read it! Immediately!" (Judith Viorst, best-selling author of Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day)

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Critic Reviews

"Hits a poetry trifecta: high energy, rhymes that can rival Cole Porter's, and a torrent of ideas...a worthy heir to Silverstein, Seuss, and even Ogden Nash." (Publishers Weekly)

"A frolicking romp through the zany world of nonsense verse.... Visual, aural, and downright guffaw-inspiring puns and riddles abound in this wildly imaginative and cleverly illustrated debut collection. The inspired and inspiring sense of play knows no bounds." (Kirkus Reviews)

"This debut collection shines.... Together, this Hollywood writer and award-winning illustrator might just make all of us - the kids and the grown-ups - smile again." (The New York Times)
