Swallowed a bunny.
The bunny got stuck in his throat.
"That bunny looks funny,"
His mom said, "but Honey,
Be thankful it isn't a goat."
In the best tradition of children's poetry, Bill Grossman has created a delightful collection of verses. Each poem is accompanied by a witty and whimsical illustration by celebrated artist Kevin Hawkes. From Kevin I Moses, who has seventeen noses, to Walter Lackwards, whose head is on backwards, these poems are full of hilarious characters who will tickle the funny bones of children and adults alike.

In a riotous collection of rhymes about such unusual characters as Old Ned, who walks with a horse on his head; squeaky-clean Keith, who brushes his teeth--and his head--right out of existence; and Mr. McFyfe, who has been sitting on his wife for a long, long time, Bill Grossman keeps his readers rolling in the aisles. Take "The Barber," for instance.
She was cutting his hair,There's nothing like a dose of slapstick poetry to inspire kids to read--and maybe even write--more. Outrageous and quirky color-soaked paintings by Kevin Hawkes, prominent illustrator of My Little Sister Ate One Hare (also by Grossman), Weslandia, and many others, add immeasurably to Grossman's hysterical, verging on the bizarre, verses. (Ages 4 and older) --Emilie Coulter About the Author:
But he slipped in his chair,
And she lopped off his ears as she cut.
She shouted, "My shears
Have lopped off your ears!"
And he looked up and said to her, "What?"
