Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
I think readers of this cute poetry edition will get some laughs along the way. The "All Aboard Poetry Reader Station Stop" series allows for short sentences, simple plots, and simple dialogue. There are five poems presented in the book: "Caveman Manners," "Percival Pig," "The Pickle King," "Little Miss Muffet: The Real Story," and "The Nose Picker Champ." Parents and children could discuss the manners they expect in various situations or just enjoy the book for its laughable merits. The illustrations are clever and bright. 2006, Grosset and Dunlap/Penguin, Ages 6 to 10.
