Praise For Poems I Wrote When No One Was Looking…
"Accompanied by Koren's impish, characteristically furry caricatures, Katz's comedic poems take aim at familiar experiences like family squabbling and avoiding homework, while offering child-centric observations about the world."
--Publishers Weekly, July 2011
"I laughed out loud when I read the poems in this book, as did my students! B&W line drawings add to the humor and make the poems appealing to older students. Quite a few of the poems include mild bathroom humor, just the right type to appeal to upper elementary and middle school students."
--Library Media Connection, Jan/Feb 2012, Recommended
"As they did in Oops!, Katz and Koren once again craft a giggle-inducing collection of 100 humorous poems. . . . This collection should prove popular with readers who’ve enjoyed the work of Shel Silverstein, Jack Prelutsky, and Douglas Florian."
--School Library Journal, November 2011
"The succinct verses derive humor from puns, family dynamics, and bathroom humor as well as a generous sprinkling of general silliness. This is solid ground for amusing grade-school poetry, as demonstrated by the likes of Jack Prelutsky and Douglas Florian."
--BCCB, December 2011
