About the Author:

Ross Venokur is the author of The Autobiography of Meatball Finkelstein, The Cookie Company, and The Amazing Frecktacle. He lives in Santa Monica, California.

One day Ross began daydreaming about haiku. "Seventeen syllables? What the heck is that about?" These random thoughts quickly became an obsession, and the result is Haiku! Gesundheit.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 3-5-Haiku as a form seeks to capture a moment in time. Haiku! Gesundheit would seem to be seeking to capture the moments in which children are their most obnoxious. Using the traditional form, Venokur creates such forgettable images as "Marty picked his nose-/shoved his finger so far up,/it came out his ear" or "Flying over town,/Beth saw a boy she hated/and spit on his head." Each selection is on a double-page spread, accompanied by Scharf's flat, unmemorable cartoons.-Kathleen Whalin, Greenwich Country Day School, CT
