From the inner workings of Grandpa’s nose hair to noodles in a haystack, Calef Brown once again proves he is a master of hilarious poetic imponderables such as . . . donuts:
Why do all grownups like donuts so much?
They rave about flavors and fillings and such.
They praise all the glazes. They savor the dough.
Donuts are tasty. We get it! We know!!
Calef Brown writes and illustrates at his home on the coast of Maine. His other titles include Hallowilloween, Polkabats and Octopus Slacks, Soup for Breakfast and the #1 New York Times Bestseller Flamingos on the Roof. www.calefbrown.com
"As in Flamingos on the Roof (2006) and Brown’s other titles, the words’ playful sounds are a big part of the fun for young readers, and the lines are filled with the weird puns and unexpected rhymes . . . A good choice for energizing poetry units."Booklist
"[Brown] once again demonstrates his inventiveness, both through his poetry and his pictures."
