    " This book of poems has about a hundred poems written in different styles. One of my favorites is called I am on a Bumpy Road. All of the poems in this book are very playful and silly. My favorite one is Call of the Winded Owl on page 57. This one is not a poem at all, and without it's illustrations it wouldn't even be funny, and in my opinion that's what makes it great. "

    " I picked this up out of curiousity when I saw it in a library display, sat down at a table, and read the entire thing on the spot. There is something Shel Silverstienesque about several of the poems, but overall, I liked him better. I liked his vocabulary--he isn't afraid to use big words, some of which may not even be familiar to some adults. I remember being fascinated by words when I was a child, and I think it is great to have poems where beautiful words are used no matter how many syllables they have. I actually laughed out loud in a few places, and I could imagine my 4- and 6-year-old nephews laughing too. "

    " My son who is 4, almost 5, loved this book. It was on his reading list for his summer book group, kids mostly 1st to 3rd grade. It reminded me alot of the Shel Silverstein poetry books I read growing up in the 70's and 80's. They were humorous poems for kids and funny for adults, too. I would call this a new Shel Silverstein style book. It is new this year and won the Poetry Foundation's Children's Poet Laureate. My son's favorite poem is "The Blue-Bean-Bonking Bupple." "
