Every poem in this book is styled after a poem written by William Carlos Williams. Here is an example: "They sing the bear went over the mountain/which leads him to see other mountains/Forgive me: no one sings the ending, the landslide and the dead bear."

I was hoping for laugh out loud funny with this book and instead got mostly irreverent and mean. Most of the poems make fun of fairy tales. From Little Red Riding Hood (Grandma to Wolf) "When you arrive I will not be lying in my bed/where you hungrily hoped to find me/Forgive me: tell my granddaughter better one of us should live."

This book is advertized for ages 8-12 which is perfect since they are the age that likes this kind of irreverence the best. However, be aware of the negative content.

I usually love Gail's books, but, no offense, I hated this one. :(
Very disappointing.
