Students and teachers will roar as Kenn Nesbitt pokes fun at silly school topics with dozens of wacky poems.

Who knew school lunches and detention could be so funny? Kenn Nesbitt, that's who Do you attend a school like the one Kenn Nesbitt describes in this hysterically funny collection of poems? There's a frenzied food fight in the cafeteria. For show-and-tell, kids burp the ABCs. Recently, "pet days" have been banned (and for good reason). And the funniest things happen when the teacher isn't looking. Kids and teachers rate these rhymes A+ (and you will, too).
