KIRKUS REVIEW

Funny plays on words, one for every day of the year including February 29, in the spirit of Lewis Carroll, W.S. Gilbert, Ogden Nash and Cole Porter. Acrostics, anagrams, malapropisms, oxymorons, rebuses and spoonerisms are interleaved with some real rhetorical rarities--clerihews, hobson-jobsons, lipograms, rhopalics. Utter nonsense.
