Really great read this, and I'm not just saying this because I know the author. There's an A.E. Houseman roll and rumble to these poems, flavored with a Silverstein heart. I know it's the most cliche thing in the world to say, but they DO awaken long-sleeping channels and passageways that you've likely taken very rarely since you were a child.

this book was really nice, it kind of reminded me of a shorter, grown up version of Shel Silverstein's book, Where The Sidewalk Ends. It kind of opened up the same way. but it's different, all the same. i really liked it. i love poetry. and these poems were really good. and the drawings were awesome. i mean seriously. they were so good.

These poems are adorable! It invited me back into my childhood, and even though I've never heard of this book a couple of weeks ago, I felt nostalgic throughout. Definitely re-reading this again.
