it was ok
bookshelves: abandoned, how-poetry, what-children
Read in June, 2009

This one is even less original than the other book of his I reviewed "My Dog May Be a Genius." Same staid rhyming schemes, same not so funniness. Each poem is about a type of creature from some planet, not even different sorts of science fiction tales. Really ordinary.

Lisa Vegan Hmm. Well, I voted for your review because it's an eloquent opposing opinion. I actually loved these. I thought that they were a lot of fun and different from any I'd known. I know some reluctant readers who could really get into these, especially some boys who don't normally like poetry. I didn't think they were funny ha ha, but I figure for kids, a lot of them not being science fiction readers but being interested in aliens... But, your review should be bumped up for others to see so I did vote for it.

Kelly H. (Maybedog) That's sweet. I was more specific in my review of the other book. Really, our reviews aren't that relevant. What matters is whether kids will read the books. If so, yay!
