About the Author:

Charles Ghigna, known as "Father Goose," has published over 30 books of poetry for children and adults and has received numerous awards for his work. A former poetry editor of The English Journal for the National Council of Teachers of English, he currently speaks around the world promoting an appreciation for children's literature. He lives in Homewood, Alabama. John Speirs has illustrated numerous children's books, including Abrams' The Little Boy's Christmas Gift. His work has been exhibited with the England-based Royal Society of Portrait Painters and Fine Arts Society. He lives in Richmond, England.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 2-4-Rhyming quatrains and couplets that describe pigs, hippos, penguins, turtles, butterflies, hummingbirds and dogs are mingled with punny poems ("...I will always BEE yours./I will never have any EGRETS./You are my one and only GULL./OWL always love you") and nonsense rhymes. A few are just too ridiculous and forced ("...Is this stuff all well known?/I've never seen a shark who made a loan./This, too, sounds rather rash,/I've never seen a cow who carries cash..."). Charming watercolor-washed pencil drawings of cartoon-style children, birds, and animals (some clothed) add significant appeal to the collection. An appended index lists each animal mentioned in the poems. A supplementary purchase where silly poetry is in demand.-Susan Scheps, Shaker Heights Public Library, OH
