Philomel (2002)

In this zany collection (by different authors whose poems were chosen in a nationwide contest), you’ll find a mouse family overrunning a house, dining dragons, crazy mothers, a scary attic, an invisible guest, the biggest sandwich in the world, detestable vegetables, muddy glasses, a lady whose head screws off, the girl who swallowed a squirrel, and the tickle that went out of control. These 23 poems are guaranteed to tickle your funny bone!
