The book was magic. My children really love the poems, especially Grasshopper Pie and Tickle Monster. I hope to see more work by Mr. Steinberg.

Grasshopper Pie and Other Poems is a collection of whimsical stories by David Steinberg. Brought to life by cartoonist Adrian Sinnott, the tales and illustrations will captivate children and parents alike. My two daughters loved the Grasshopper chronicles-- from the title story to a tale about an upside-down boy and an 'Alien in My Soup.' My oldest daughter, age 7, found the cover illustration fun to study, with grasshoppers playfully swimming in the kitchen sink, lounging in the silverware drawer, munching on a blueberry pie, etc. Anyone who has children knows that children love looking at the details of any given drawing and spotting the various activities depicted that the artist brings to life (there's a sort of 'Where's Waldo?' quality to the cover). As my oldest daughter said, 'The drawings are cool and the stories are funny.' Thankfully, Grasshopper Pie does not have any politically correct adult moralizing, and instead emphasizes children's imaginations. I recommend Grasshopper Pie for children ages 5 to 8, and for adults who wish to revisit the way they once thought when they were young.

This book is great for young kids who like poetry and LOVE wonderful, detailed illustrations. I read this to my five-year old niece who really had fun looking for the grasshopper hidden on every page. Adrian Sinnott is an extremely talented artist and knows just how to put a smile on a kid's face!! :-)

I found the artwork in this book so beautiful and attractive to children. In my opinion, the artwork shows movement and humour beyond anything I've seen before. The art is most definitely the best aspect of the book! Perfect for children of all ages!

Great for children. My kids asked me to read it several times and acted out some of the characters. It reminded us of early Dr. Seuss.
