Wordplay master Jon Agee tackles these and other tricky tongue twisters in a funny new title featuring his equally hilarious artwork. The combination will leave you speechless.
From the title poem to a silly trip up a hill for "Gus's Gas," or a praise of "Unique New York," this collection is loaded with tricky tongue-twisting rhymes that will challenge readers. For example: "A dodo'll dawdle, a dodo'll diddle,/A dodo'll doodle a doodle or two./A dodo'll yodel, a dodo'll coo./But that's about all that a dodo'll do." Agee's signature boldly outlined watercolors with simple shapes illustrate each verse with amusing details and plenty of white space. Words like "zither," "muesli," "surly," "unkempt," "surmise," "portly," and "mimicking" are sprinkled throughout. While all of the poems are crowd pleasers, one or two will have youngsters howling. In addition to being just plain funny, Agee is a wordsmith and accomplished illustrator, factors that have produced another must-have winner from a comic master.-Lee Bock, Glenbrook Elementary School, Pulaski, WI
