Poems that make you laugh out loud. Chris Harris writes more than just nonsense, though. Check out "The Little Hurts" and "I'm Shy on the Outside." His poetry also resonates.

A wonderfully witty, playful, and original collection of poems that belongs right beside Shel Silverstein, Jack Prelutsky, and the other giants of children's poetry. The best I've read in a long time. The humor variously emerges from wordplay, topics, themes, typography, logic games, meta- and self-references, and more, with surprising, well-timed breaks for earnestness and wisdom every so often. Highly recommended.

Funniest children's poetry author since Prelutsky and Silverstein.

The Good-Child Test

I used special ink on this poem's last line
That some children see and some don't.
If you're a good child, then you'll read it just fine--
