" What's not to love--a match between Trillin and Chast. " said.

" Poems about childhood that seem more like they are for those reminiscing than those experiencing it. Includes illustrations by Roz Chast whose work you may recognize from magazines and newspapers. " said.

" I am a big fan of both Trillin and Chast, but this book turned out to be a disappointment. The poems were not actually very good. The illustrations were fun, as always, but overall this one really misses the mark. What a bummer. " said.

" Since I love all work by Roz Chast, I missed her voice in the poetry. " said.

" Awesome childhood poems. Not a one of them was a dud. " said.

" Kids' book, but the poetry is a cut above your average kids' book. " said.

" Longer poems about childhood that are light and humorous. " said.

" The poems themselves had a form and rhythm that I liked. The subject perhaps not so much, but maybe that is because I am a new stepmom and I am not looking to complaints or whines related to their childhood. But I suppose I could see how many children would connect to these poems. Their wide variety of what they experience. The silliness to them. I do love that the poems are based on experiences/stories the author knows of.Not generally a fan of the illustrations. " said.
