Find your funny bone and grab your giggles

You're about to embark on an adventure through the hilarious landscape created by Alan Katz and Edward Koren.

From the kingdom of His Royal Sloppiness (also known as the prince of fingerprints) to the trouble-ridden Pencil-vania, this is a world of hallway hijinks, show-and-smell, clean-freak parents, dentist dilemmas, bothersome brothers, and sinister sisters. If you are a kid, or you know a kid, or if you ever were a kid, this is a poetry collection to cherish (but wipe your hands first ).

Review:

"Like Jack Prelutsky and Shel Silverstein, Katz (Take Me Out of the Bathtub) revels in the kind of schoolyard humor and wordplay relished by his target audience. These 100 light verses contain references to stale gum, troublesome siblings, outwitted parents, dirty underwear, farting in church, belly buttons and enough smelly things to make a fourth-grade boy laugh out loud in the library. Although the meter frequently stumbles, the topics are quirky ('I'm writing a love song to eggs./ They don't have eyes,/ they don't have legs./ They cannot sing,/ they cannot dance. / You cannot keep them / in your pants./ But they're my friends...'). They're often contemporary, too, as in a poem that begins, 'I put my brother on eBay,/ but nobody made a bid.' Koren (Very Hairy Harry), well known as a New Yorker cartoonist, amplifies the humor with droll b&w drawings in his distinctive, antically cross-hatched style. Perhaps the best section of all is in prose, consisting of 30 free-form 'special bonus pages!!' called 'Oops! There's More.' Here Katz offers some of the funniest jokes in the book along with a mlange of digressions about his grade school career, advice for young writers and a tongue-in-cheek promotion for Uh-Oh, this book's sequel. Ages 7-10." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Review:

"Children — never mind adults — will find the urge to read aloud from these pages well nigh irresistible." Kirkus Reviews
