The New York Times

"It's a veritable sundae of delights-layers of puns, word games, visual jokes—that I honestly would give to any kid ages short to tall." —

"This inspired collection of nonsense verse from the executive producer of
How I Met Your Mother showcases a rare gift for wacky wordplay." —People

"I'm just no good at describing how wonderful this book is. Smart and sweet, wild and wicked, brilliantly funny—it's everything a book for kids should be." —
BJ Novak, actor and bestselling author of The Book With No Pictures

Jason Segel, actor, screenwriter, producer, and author of Nightmares!

"This book, with its loony poems and seriously weird illustrations, is ridiculous, nonsensical, peculiar, outrageous, possibly deranged—and utterly, totally, absolutely delicious. Read it! Immediately!" —
Judith Viorst, bestselling author of Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

"Chris Harris is a poet and everyone should know it! Love this book!" —
Andrea Beaty, bestselling author of Rosie Revere, Engineer

“Chris Harris has done it again, and he's gotten so much better at being 'no good at rhyming.'  This book is a feast of rhyming, word-play, and cleverness—jam-packed, overloaded, even! If you like seeing words goofing around and enjoying themselves, then this is the book for your eyeballs to gaze upon. Highly recommended, it gets 5 stars and 8 moons and a chef's kiss and a tip of the hat and a jump in the lake from me.”―
Bob Odenkirk --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
