"Silly it may be, but all the best kind, prompting the reader to see the world (slightly) askew and to delight in it." - Horn Book

"A hearty salute to eccentricity." - Publishers Weekly

"Read aloud, these poems are sure to delight listeners. They also provide a great impetus for inspiring youngsters to write nonsense poetry of their own." - School Library Journal

"The book celebrates language and wordplay with some real tongue-twisters, and the high-energy acrylic illustrations are just as engaging as the text." - Parents' Choice
