Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 2-5–This collection of more than 100 poems features comical wordplay (Oh, Brother opens: If r were taken out of brother/Your brother would just be a bother…) as well as lots of fun riffs on Mother Goose rhymes and fairy tales. Many are about family, friends, and school. Anyone familiar with Wilson's picture books knows that she's a good writer with a fresh eye and a knack for child appeal. Those qualities are very much in evidence here. The humorous, light tone is similar to Jack Prelutsky's work, although Wilson has a serious side, too. For example, Golden Eggs shows a goose wearing a necklace labeled BLING; she's looking at an empty cradle, and the poem reads, She'd rather have/One fluffy chick/than a million golden eggs, you see. Blitt's line drawings are a great match for the verses. They are funny, dynamic, and full of personality. Plenty of white space adds to the accessible, inviting look. All in all, a great choice for read-alouds or individual enjoyment.–Lauralyn Persson, Wilmette Public Library, IL

More About the Author

I'm a wife, mother of three, writer and photographer. I love to write fun stories, poems, songs, etc... I especially love to write in rhyme because I think that well written rhyme naturally teaches children to expand their vocabulary and love books and reading.

I spend my time in the wilds of northwest Montana, where there are lots of bears and animals like the ones in my bear books! I love the wilderness and all of the animals that live there. My husband and children are also avid lovers of the outdoors.

I am also an amateur photographer. Give me a camera and I'll spend hours snapping photos.

This collection is fun, often very funny, and always kid-pleasing. The author knows what kids respond to. The variety of poems is mind-boggling. My 7yo and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
