KIRKUS REVIEW

You can ""cool your tea/ with the wings of a bee"" or ""share a pear/with a/ hungry bear"" in this fast-paced little rhyming game. If the bizarre images and odd juxtapositions in these couplets and triplets don't get laughs, the energetic, though derivative, drawings will. ""Take a snail/for a sail/in a polka dot pail"" and you've got a pirate ship shooting cannons at you; ""make a man sneeze/ with a mouth full of peas"" and you're dodging a fusillade of legumes. While it's not poetry it is fun.
