As a boy obsessed with horror and sci-fi, I delighted in this book. It was like a revelation, a sign that somewhere out there were people as weird and twisted as myself and with a sense of humour to boot. I think this is definitely required reading for any young boy, and for any young girl of discerning tastes.
One of my students handed me this book and told me I had to read it. (That's always a good sign.). I could not believe I had never read this crazy, funny romp of a collection. The illustrations are hilarious, and the rhymes, besides just being fun, offer up a LOT of opportunities for discussion-rhyming words, figurative language, vocabulary building, dictionary use-just to name a few.
