About the collection

Can you touch your own eye? I think you should try?
Can you lick your own nose? Hey that’s pretty gross.
Can you suck your own toe? Bend in half, there you go.
These poems are strange and a little deranged.Can you read the whole bunch without losing your lunch?
Maybe you can, but one thing is true:you’ll laugh out your insides before it is through!

One of the reviews for the collection

Amazon Customer5.0 out of 5 stars Super clever and just awesomeness! Reviewed in the United States on May 6, 2021

This book is so great! I find myself chuckling at the cleverness and silliness of the poems! There’s some new ways of describing things I’ve not heard before, but are very accurate!

For example, he describes being about to puke as going to “remix the salsa” or “burp the rainbow.” One of my favorites is “The Noah’s ark Burger,” which raises an important question of what animal does baloney come from?? I also really love “Nursery Grimes!”

This book is a lot of fun and both children and adults (at least the cool ones) can enjoy!
