From School Library Journal:

Grade 2-5-- A jolly good collection of nonsense poems to tickle readers' funny bones. The book introduces a great many silly characters and several hilarious happenings. Meet Betty Bopper, a popcorn popper; Captain Cuff, who is very, very rough; and Dirty Dan Ploof who is surely fireproof. Experience the unexpected in "Wading," "The Wind," and "The Seaside." Each of these distinctive poems reveals the wit, skill, and love of language and wordplay that characterize Ciardi's work; his poems continue to breathe fresh air into the world of children's literature. Delightfully illustrated with black-and-white drawings, it's perfect for reading aloud. A treasure trove of giggles. --April L. Judge, Thousand Oaks Library, CA
