Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Forty-one poems that look at ordinary things in unusual ways. "Viorst takes everyday situations that frustrate, bewilder, or bemuse and turns them into fodder for her audience's personal laugh tracks. . . . (She) succeeds in bringing out the fun in human foibles and her poems that twist traditional fairy-tale endings are positively inspired."--"Booklist."

Synopsis:

If you've ever had trouble apologizing or keeping a secret, had a crush or a broken heart, there's a poem here for you! Written with humor and understanding, Judith Viorst's poems are certain to delight children and adults alike — and be read again and again.
