This book is bound
To pick you up.
To give a little lift.
If you take half
A change you’ll laugh.
We know you won’t be miffed.
So find a home
Inside a poem.
Take off your shoes and sit
And if you smile
Once in a while,
We won’t mind it one bit!
“Sure to draw fans of Shel Silverstein and Jack Prelutsky . . . [These poems] provoke laughter while playfully manipulating language to capture the comical essence of things and events in a child’s world.”—School of Library Journal

Editorial Reviews

"The poems in this book/ Are meant to be humorous.They poke fun at the everyday ("Our school lunch is from outer space,/ Endangering the human race") and the imaginary ("Hello, my name is Dracula./ My clothing is all blackula./... /At dawn I hit the sackula./ Tomorrow I'll be backula!"). Florian repeatedly shows that he knows what makes kids giggle."--Publishers Weekly"Kids will find plenty to chuckle over in Douglas Florian's punchline-rich Laugh-eteria, his seventh poetry offering after walloping successes like Bing Bang Boing and Insectlopedia. Florian fans will enjoy the punster's groan-worthy wordplay, and kids will no doubt relish the rampant silliness that's strangely akin to their own."
