Polkabats and Octopus Slacks: 14 Stories
"Pure mania and inspiration . . . I call it a masterpiece"—Danial Pinkwater, NPR'S Weekend Edition
 
Flamingos on the Roof
A #1 New York Times Bestseller
"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
 
Soup for Breakfast
"A smorgasbord of punditry and weirdness, this collection will remind kids that poetry and pictures can exist just for kicks."—Publishers Weekly

Review:

"In jokily menacing poems, Brown delivers satisfyingly off-kilter rhymes: 'Jack is a rare wolf./ A covered with hair wolf./ A crouch in the doorway/ to give you a scare wolf.' An assortment of weird and memorable figures include 'the Oompachupa Loompacabra,' which devours goats by luring them with chocolate bars; the 'vumpire' ('When managers argue,/ he makes them feel sleepy'); and Dorian Gray's opposite, 'Gory René.' The outlandish humor and stylized acrylics, a balance of spooky and whimsical, put an entertaining spin on Halloween. Ages 5 — 8. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)
