Quirky and fun. Makes me laugh out loud and feel the same way.

Picture book with accompanying poems. Child-centered content, but uniquely, the poems do not rhyme or follow strict line length or rhythm.

Food and aspects of a community are mainly the topics with a different take.The book would be useful in comparing and contrasting the topics that various authors choose and why they do so.
