Overview - Pure nuttiness: the Twimerick , a fiendish confection of limerick plus

A petulant flatulent

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

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.
