5.0 out of 5 stars "the Tao of Dogginess!"*, September 25, 2011
"Pooches large and small, common and rare abound in this glorious collection of haiku....Brilliant in every way: poetically, visually--the Tao of dogginess!" ' starred Kirkus Reviews. And from School Library Journal: "Fetch this title full of wordplay, creative romps, and pet prompts for a fun read." And, from Library Media Connection: "Twenty superbly honed haiku capture the essence and curiosities of twenty breeds of dogs. Each poem is spot-on both in terms of poetic excellence and insight into unique characteristics of the diverse canines, from Bluetick Coonhound to Dachshund, with Pembroke Welsh Corgi, Samoyed, Golden Retriever, and others in between.... An author's note presents brief additional information about each breed...Truly, a dog treat to be savored."

3.0 out of 5 stars minimal help, too general, March 11, 2008
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Very basic, that's all that can be said. And it chose to cover a whole range of models, so at least half of the book won't pertain to YOUR camera. The general photography info is delivered in a hasty manner with too few examples. It would be hard to actually learn a lot from this book. A little, yes. Some tips, some clear writing. But it's not the "missing book" you wish came with your camera, whatever model you might have.

2.0 out of 5 stars packaging is a huge downer, otherwise, fine, November 9, 2007
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
So the taste is fine. The lime IS unsweetened, okay, fine, and the flavor does come through. No, it doesn't have any real tartness or "fresh lime" quality. But it does add lime flavor. But WHY THEY CAN'T offer this in a jar, resealable bag, etc., instead of tiny packets that have so little solid inside that it's actually hard to empty the contents--that, I don't get. Plus it's a lot of little garbage to throw away that surely isn't necessary.

5.0 out of 5 stars inspiration, pure inspiration!, May 12, 2007
Funny, touching, motivating, profound, giddy, practical, relevant: that's what 51 years of Chenfeld's teaching of children reveal in this collection. She celebrates the fundamental truths that commit us to teaching with heartfelt observations of the classrooms and children she has taught and learned from. The ideal book for a new teacher, for an old teacher, for any family interested in how children come to love a life of learning.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Monumental Study of Rock & Roll! It's Glacial!, July 14, 2005
Grossberger is a force of nature. His comedic gift blurs the lines between fact and fiction, music and mischief. He invents a history of music from the 50s to the present day, leveling the playing field. It's zany, zooey, unglued, and hyperbolic, just like the musicians themselves. It's a book for Elvis fans, Beatlemanias, Little Richardarians, Motownians, Madonna maniacs, Bowie wowies--in other words, all of us with iPods and LPs and old copies of Rolling Stone. It's the music industry unplugged, unzipped, and zapped. I can't imagine anyone else having such a smart perspective. A great read, with photos (and wayward captions) throughout!

5.0 out of 5 stars What's Black and White and Yellow All Over?, January 15, 2005
Obvious answer: this amazingly beautiful book that's printed in two colors and manages to capture this entire noisy, giddy, wayward world in its lines. It's a hilarious and smart compendium of nearly every living, breathing, pontificating thing on the planet. If you're a birdwatcher, you'll want to add Thompson's rare birds to your life list: the Eastern Pottymouthed Snark; the Unmitigated Gull; the Commonplace Dullard; and, hardly least of all, the Flightless Grouse who "plods up and down the Eastern U.S. whining the whole damn time." There are guides to weeds, clouds, cookies, county fairs, catalogues, constellations, Halloween costumes, and "local bogeymen." Basically, Richard Thompson covers the waterfront, dipping his pen into everything from politics and other pollutants, to surburbia and other relicts. It's a blissful romp that should carry you through the seasons, year after year.

5.0 out of 5 stars 10 Reasons, December 4, 2004
1 The War Horses of Literature get saddled, bridled, and pranced around the Big Top with about as much reverence as buffoonery. Heaney can parody as many people as Las Vegas superstar Danny Gans, and there's no 2-drink minimum or $100 ticket that's probably sold out anyway since you didn't book in advance.
2 The book's design: It's been "anagrammed" as well: this is your high school English book, torn apart and reassembled. The book is brimming with liberally applied wit.
3 Heaney slaps his anagramatic skill on everything from the title ("Holy Tango" is "anthology," rearranged) to "The Note About the Typeface" ("Hey, a beat poet, a cute font"). This must be what he does at parties: shakes hands, learns your name, and then invents anagrams for you while sipping absinthe martinis.
4 Richard Thompson's illustrations. So now the book has a second twist like that ride on the midway that first has you spinning, and then has you dipping up and down.
5 Stamps! A full page of colorful stamps.
6 The small pleasure in seeing Maya Angelou and Sylvia Plath receive a little comeuppance.
7 The soon-to-be-immortal parody of Euripides, rearranged as "I Reuse Dip," a classical treatment of the Seinfeld episode where George dips twice in the humus.
8 The already classic "Hairball King" by the regrettably immortal Kahlil Gibran, in which a tabby is instructed in the ways of the humans.
9 Positive proof that laughter's one of the nobler callings, higher powers, and loftier things in life. You come away from this book saying, "Sheesh, I wish I were that smart," but using your own words.
10 On the other hand, you think, "Why bother." You can just enjoy this book and keep on being your own merry self.
