Why? Huh? Why?
Why doesn’t cough
Rhyme with rough?
And same thing with trough
It’s all so confusing.
From now on, I’m choosing
to skip this ridiculous stough.

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!).
