P.S.- I loved "The Girl with Many Eyes"! (It was a clean and funny poem)!
P.S.S.- Not all of the poems contain drug or sexual content!! In fact, most are clean and clever!
The book is oddly formatted. Some pages have one line of verse and a picture on the adjacent side. The book looks like it is written for children, but I don't know if any kids would understand or enjoy it as a young adult like me did.
The illustrations gave me the creeps; they are fun, yet disturbing at the same time. I recommend this book!
