"Readers chortling their way through this inspired assemblage of cautionary tales, verbal hijinks, and thoughtful observations, deftly inserted, will find the temptation to read parts of it aloud irresistible." 05/01/1996 Washington Post Book World
"As in previous books, the author's teasing tone absorbs the impact of his serious and macabre selections. And, of course, it welcomes readers to share in the jokes. Silverstein still specializes in subversively educational verse." - Nathalie op de Beeck 06/02/1996
