Skip the short stories and head straight to the poems.
The description of this book was definitely interesting. I enjoyed the way the writer switched between short stories and poems. Unfortunately, I didn't really like the short stories. They were full of puns and I think would be funny if they were told on stage by a comedian, but not so funny as the written word. The author definitely has creative ideas and it would be interesting to see what kind of stories he could tell that were a little more serious.Was this review helpful?

On the other hand, I did like most of the poems. The author has a penchant for cats, and I liked it when he wrote about them. I especially liked the poem "My Cat is Not Like Other Cats." It wasn't written for laughs, but was written to show why this cat is different from other cats. "How the Isle of Cats Got Its Name" was humerous and enjoyable.
For those that like puns and silliness, then this book is for you. For those who don't like groaning at the end of a story because you got to the punchline, then you will probably not enjoy this book.
