Editorial Reviews

Canadian Children's Book News
"Rhyming poems are paired with an interview with the main character or a serving of fascinating food facts. Black-and-white art appears in this collection crafted around a most clever premise."
Southwestern Ohio Young Adult Materials Review Group
*no details*
The Bookmark (BCTLA)
"The colourful cover and numerous illustrations should attract independent readers while teachers could use indiviual poems...Recommended."
Northumberland Today
"Offering (among other treats) a good-nutrition update on some old Mother Goose poems, Frankenstein's idea of a good feed, and an introduction to the concept of burgoo."
CM Magazine
"Skene's poems and information are enjoyable reads, both funny and informative. They can be read as a book, or poem by poem as time permits; these would be great in a classroom for when the teacher has a few free minutes (before the bell rings or otherwise). Highly recommended."
Resource Links
"A compilation of six funny, story length rhyming poems...The poems are well-written and fun to read aloud."
Tucson Unified School District
"A book of six silly poems that students will love to read...Fun and simple to read. Recommended."

Read an Excerpt

The whole thing started in my bowl,

when I sat down to lunch.

I love zoo crackers in my soup,

so I threw in a bunch.

They floated in my noodle soup.

My bowl looked like a zoo.

And then I heard them calling me,

"Hey, you there, Soozy Q.!"
