"Want to give young ones the fun of rhyme, rhythm, and word
play? Then look for The Llama Who Had no Pajama. There's no reason
to wait for poetry units at school to introduce children to verse
when Mary Ann Hoberman can do it with her collection of 100 poems."
Christian Science Monitor Best Children's Books
"This collection of some forty years of Hoberman verse is
a charmer. The poems - peppy verses immediately identifiable as
Hoberman's by their use of alliteration and repeated words and lines
- seem to cover every subject under the sun; all are dependably
"Poems drawn from Hoberman's previous works
to delight a new generation of youngsters. Children may be reminded
of A.A. Milne's poetry
but Hoberman's poetry goes deeper, offering
children a new way to look at things."
