A collection of cheeky, funny, high-energy poems.

"Squeezed Fresh Daily"

Mothers lurk behind doors
and lunge at you like Jaws
making careers
out of things in your ears
saying how much they miss you
finding excuses to kiss you.

Elizabeth Honey’s funny and accessible poems capture every day life in all its splendor from a child’s point of view. She takes as her subjects stick-loving dogs, messy siblings, beleaguered parents, kindly grandparents, and the wild boys down the street. And though many are silly, and a couple downright rude, taken together
these poems exude enormous warmth and affection between young and old. The characters represented here are part of an extended family that we can all recognize and love.
