NPM 2021 Day 28: Up Verses Down

In need of another collection of silly poems akin to Shel Silverstein?  Here you are!

1-UVD COVER“Up Verses Down: Poems, Paintings, and Serious Nonsense” is a collection of goofy poems and illustrations by Calef Brown.  There is word play and whimsy, spectacle and spoof, and verbal riposte akin to Lewis Carroll (I dare to say).  If nonsense poetry isn’t your thing, then this probably isn’t for you, but I would bet that kids would love it.

Calef Brown isn’t afraid of playing with words (or claiming that this book is 100% powered by Poetrolium–get it?).  There are a wide variety of subjects here that he toys with.  I share one of them:
