If toddlers could write poetry, this is how it might look…

May 21, 2012

I haven’t laughed out loud from a book this much in ages. And while I wait for my book to arrive (this is one that will definitely live on my coffee table), I downloaded the Kindle version. To What Miserable Wretches Have I Been Born?: Revenge Poetry for Babies and Toddlers by Suzanne Weber, contains funny poetry and musings of babies and toddlers if they could talk. Hilarious. Here’s an extract:
