About the Author

Neal Fox is the kind of person who zigs when everyone else zags. (In fact, that's the theme of his poem, "Why Not?") He hates being one of the crowd, doesn't like to conform, and sees no point in limiting his creativity. Eccentric and eclectic, he's won awards for music, videos, and art.

Fox is the co-creator of the Confetti Company books (with recordings narrated by actor Robert Guillaume). The multicultural series inspired the HBO special, Happy Ever After: Fairy Tales for Every Child.

As a writer of children's songs ("Big Horned Sheep," "I'm an Elephant"), it was natural to move into poetry. Fox loves to play with words and never takes anything-including himself-too seriously. His style ranges from innocent to edgy, heartwarming to hilarious. He can give a lesson without a lecture, make kids feel smarter, and make the world a friendlier place.

“It’s Weird to Grow a Beard” is full of a variety of funny poems about all kinds of things! From growing a weird beard, to a sandwich miles high, to a cat who swallowed a frog, this book has one silly poem after the next! I enjoyed the poems in this book. The poems were very funny and unique! The book had a lot of illustrations too. The illustrations were also funny and went really well with the poems! I think any kid would enjoy the poems in the book. There’s one word in the book that parents may object too (it starts with c and rhymes with happy), but I also know that some families/cultures don’t think that word is impolite. The poems are fun, and the rhymes flow well and I LOVE the silliness! I think silly poems are a great way of getting kids into reading poetry and the poems in this book are right for that! **NOTE I got a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
