This clever collection of poems will have you laughing out loud. One of my favorites is The Last Piece of Cake. 'Whoever ate the last piece of cake, I hope that you get a bellyache, or bit when you sit on a poisonous snake. Perhaps all the bones in your body will break. What's that you say? It was me? ME who ate the last piece of cake? My mistake.'
