    ITEM#: 11919941

    Pure nuttiness: the Twimerick, a fiendish confection of limerick plus
    tongue-twister, topped off by the deliciously whacky illustrations 
    of its inventor, Lou Brooks. To wit (and to be read out loud quickly):

    A petulant flatulent 
    platypus starts,

    To tooting and flouting his 
    flute to his farts,
    But at platypus outings,
    His flatulent floutings,
    Flout his flute flat at the
    tootiest parts.

    Nonsensical whimsy—or whimsical nonsense—Twimericks are a form of wordplay that are irresistible for kids, as well as for grown-ups unafraid to be silly; perfect to be read at parties or in a classroom when learning poetry (that’s right, who knew poetry could be so much fun?). And the book itself, like the best poetry collections, is a gem offering one Twimerick per page, each illustrated in full-color by the author, a legendary commercial artist. Open to any page and feel the unbridled creative energy spilling out. It's pure happiness.
