Uncle Switch: Loony Limericks
Laugh-provoking limericks about a mixed-up character!
Uncle Switch never does anything the way other folks do. For example, Uncle Switch, wearing whiskers and fur, /Is determined to practice his purr./He solicits advice/On how best to catch mice/From a cat he addresses as "Sir".
In this collection of truly loony limericks, X. J. Kennedy, the widely known and much loved poet and light versifier, has created absurd, upside-down situations that will tickle the funny bones of all who read or hear them. Together with The New Yorker cartoonist John O'Brien's equally lunatic illustrations, this is a book sure to have young readers and their elders in stitches.
