About the Author:

Alan Snow is a well-known author and illustrator of children’s books and has also worked in many fields of design and animation. He has written two novels, Here Be Monsters! and Worse Things Happen at Sea!, both set in the wonderfully weird world of Ratbridge. He lives in Bath, England.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 5-This collection of humorous poems is packed with silly contraptions designed to solve all sorts of problems. There is "The Sure-Footed Shoe Finder," a device with a "powerful Foot-Odor-Sensitive Vent" that "tracks down your sneaker by matching its scent." When you spray a produce repellent called "Veggies Be Gone" on your family's shopping cart, it "-fends off beans, beets, and peas./It even deflects cauliflower with ease." There is also a "Tooth-Fairy Forklift" for hoisting a heavy "tooth donor," and a leaf machine that assists with raking. Reminiscent of Shel Silverstein's work, the topics are child friendly and humorous. Pen-and-ink cartoons frame each selection. Packed with amusing details, the artwork is busy and clever, and highlights just how zany some of these devices are. Children will delight in the funny verses and appreciate the creative solutions to common dilemmas.
