The Books


by Bruce Degen

One Potato Review

Exuberant nonsense, probably best enjoyed before children know enough to ask any questions about those “Elephants skating on raspberry jam.” A bear. A waterfall. A purple train. Who knows what’s going on here exactly (Degen tries for context in the postscript about childhood recollections of feasting on berries by the pail-full), still some of these verses are likely to become wedged in your consciousness – Boomberry / Zoomberry / Rockets shoot by – indeed you may even find yourself furnishing the exclamations.
