Fun to read

This is not rhyming poetry. But the prose and drawings are the laugh-out-loud-funny view of an 11-year-old boy about life. One thing that makes the stories fun is that they are not written straight out. The words are integrated into the drawings. It's a nice change of reading pace.

Grandits channels inner teen for humor and life lessons

Technically, It's Not My Fault has been responsible for even hulking football players getting into poetry. Keep these books coming!

Good poetry book for young kids.

I got this for my son, and he enjoys its offbeat teenage humor. I enjoy that he is seeing reading and writing presented in a different way.

Technically, It's Pretty Darn Good

I bought this book to review for a grad. course on children's library services and, thanks to the clever cover, was smiling before I even opened the book. Cute, light ... no serious complaints here.

funny and smart and true.

I love this book -- not only is it funny and totally nails the 11-year-old boy experience, it is also in a format (concrete poetry) that is user-friendly and may well encourage readers to write concrete poems of their own. I gave away my copy and now need to buy another one!
