"Kenn Nesbitt combines the right words to create a whimsical poetic experience for children. Adults (and soon to be adults) may not appreciate the allure of these poems, but pull out the Armpit of Doom to a room full of third graders and let the poems fly - it's sure to be a silly and memorable adventure." -Homeschoolbuzz.com
Irrepressible, unpredictable, and raucously popular children's poet Kenn Nesbitt was spawned in the same cracked petri dish as Jack Prelutsky, to whom he is the natural heir. A title guaranteed to generate "No, wait, read this one!" responses, The Armpit of Doom is more mayhem from one of the masters. -J. Patrick Lewis, US Children's Poet Laureate, author of Please Bury Me in the Library
A funny one I think.
And though it's colored black and white
Watch it tickle you PINK!
-Douglas Florian, author and illustrator of Comets, Stars, the Moon, and Mars: Space Poems and Paintings

Many of the poems are laugh-out-loud funny. In Armpit of Doom, Kenn Nesbitt employs the best of his signature style of clever puns, plays on words, and a light salting of gross-out humor without shying away from more advanced vocabulary, masterful alliteration and assonance, and all-around skilled poetrycraft. Sure to be enjoyed reading after reading, this is a must-have addition to your home library!
