Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"[A]  fun-to-read collection....Moss describes common  childhood adventures and misadventures with a fresh  slant." — School Library Journal.
School Library Journal
Gr 2-6 --In the tradition of Shel Silverstein's Where the Sidewalk Ends (Harper, 1974) and Jack Prelutsky's New Kid on the Block (Greenwillow, 1984), Moss presents another slightly wacky, fun-to-read collection of original poems. Although the pen-and-ink illustrations and the stark white cover seem a little too closely styled after Silverstein's books, the 80-plus poems can stand on their own merit. Some are just a few lines (``If the moon were made of cheese/ I would reach into the sky/ for a late-night snacking sandwich/of ham and moon on rye''), while others stretch to two full pages. In most cases, Moss describes common childhood adventures and misadventures with a fresh slant. Demarest's cartoonlike sketches complement the verses and are subtly humorous. A book that should achieve quick popularity. --Barbara S. McGinn, Oak Hill Elementary School, Severna Park, MD

    I included this book in my permanent library and read it to my grandchildren. I just gave a copy to my first great grandchild for her birthday. My granddaughter was thrilled when she saw the gift for her daughter.

    Jeff Moss and Chris Demarest really tapped into a childs sense of humor. These poems
    are as much fun for the reader as they are for children!! Loved it,
