Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Margriet Ruurs is a gifted poet who writes verse consistently reflecting a joy of language and insight into the world of children. Enhanced with illustrations, Virtual Maniac: Silly And Serious Poems For Kids is a showcase collection of her highly recommended talent. School Sick: I don't want to go to school today./I think I'll be sick so I can stay/in my bed, cozy and warm./I don't want to go out in rain and storm./I'll throw up all over the rug/and crawl back to bed, comfy 'n snug.//I'll fake a sore throat and a fever./My mom is smart, but I can deceive her!/I'll have funny lumps with a rash/so she'll want me back in bed in a flash./That way I can stay home and play,/slumber and snooze the entire day.//Uh oh!/Here comes my mom with a bottle and a pill,/she takes my temperature, I have to live very still!/I don't want to swallow that!/I just may have to get out of bed!/The medicine has a terrible smell,/and all of a sudden I feel very well!
