KIRKUS REVIEW

 Well over 100 funny poems collected by one of our funniest poets, who, fortunately, slips in a few of his own along with a fine selection of the old and new, familiar and unfamiliar. Priceman (Rachel Fister's Blister, 1990) adds to the mirth with madcap watercolor visualizationstucked in corners or looping merrily across the pages. There's no formal organization here, but one idea frequently leads to another, or to more of the same: ``The Optimist'' shares a page with ``Somebody Said that It Couldn't Be Done,'' followed by a couple of lugubrious accounts of weeping. An excellent addition to any home, classroom, or library. Index. (Poetry. 5+)
