He used this feedback to create three books of his own original poetry which include Funny Poems for Funny Little People, If Pigs Could Fly, and My Dog Ate My Homework. Lansky¿s first two song books include Tinkle, Tinkle, Little Tot and Oh My Darling, Porcupine¿which he sings in the shower and at school and bookstore appearances.

Format: Hardcover
Some of the poems in this silly school-based sing-along book are funny. Sung to the tunes of some of childrens more popular songs like "My Bonnie", "Do Your Ears Hang Low", "Clementine" and "I've Been Working On The Railroad", the kids will be in stitches over phrases like "Do you get marked down when you're acting like a clown?" and "I've been burping in the classroom since I ate my lunch. We had beefy, cheesy tacos, and I gobbled down a bunch."

Parents might be put off by the antics depicted from these students and teachers. The pictures suggest that not much (if any) learning is going on.

It is a light-hearted analogy of school at it's worst. The parent and teacher in me wanted to give this book a 3, but the inner child is me couldn't help but give this a 5 rating.

My students loved the book! They thought it was very funny. We even turned some of the poems into classroom theater skits. Great to use during a poetry unit!
