This book was a variation of poems all dealing with this group of five friends who were boys. Some of the poems talked about what was happening, so situations that one or more of the boys were placed in. Other poems were used solely to describe the characters; either by things that have done or attributes they possessed. I wasn't too fond of the smoking poem that they author put in the book because I imagined these boys are like 5th graders and didn't seem reasonable for their age. Even though I know that poems do not always have to rhyme, the scheme that the author used was a little off to me and it made the book a little hard to read. I do think that children would enjoy this book and could probably relate to some of the experiences that these boys had.
