These poems speak about experiences that everyone has (sometimes in nightmares) and to which we can relate. Some of the situations will make readers giggle, such as losing a bathing suit in the ocean after a fantastic wave. Some situations will make readers’ hearts break, such as a best friend moving away. Each poem characterizes situations that seem disastrous to the eyes of a child. This witty collection is filled with simple illustrations that are clever and fun. Reading these poems will help to get the reader's mind off the hard things of life and to find the humor in terrible situations.
