I would have liked to read an actual sample not just the first four pages that dont make it to the poetry so i cant fairly rate this book

Keep a box of tissues next to you when you read this marvelous little book!! I can't remember laughing so hard from reading anything for a very long time. Salemi is someone I would love to have around everyday, his sense of humor is fantastic!! I have repeated some of these so many times already that my kids know a few of these hilarious haikus. If you do not have a sense of humor, do not bother picking up this book. If you are looking for something to lighten your mood, take your mind off the crap of the day, or just wanting to read something new and original, get yourself a copy of this. You will not regret it.
