Life is real magic, if you know what I mean
'Cause I can make movies by thinking a scene;
And I can pretend I'm a blue submarine
(Or maybe I'll even pretend that I'm green)
Or I can imagine a big tangerine,
Or thousands of monkeys up on the screen,
Or an elephant in a designer blue jean—
Grab your ticket to the wonderful world of the whimsically weird. In this charming collection of wacky kid’s poems, you’ll find out why we’re throwing the pumpkin away, how we’re selling father’s mustache, when little sister got elephant ears, where little brother got glued, and what’s important about knee joints. Meet Cantankerous Sam, the Garbage Man; Harrie Carrie the Bearded Lady; The Wizard who looked like a Lizard; and the Grumbly Grump of Nottingham Dump.
E. Michael Lunsford’s delightful collection of illustrated poems is surprising, inventive, kooky and—most of all—hilarious.
