Review of "The Hopeful Trout and Other Limericks," by John Ciardi

Review of
The Hopeful Trout and Other Limericks, by John Ciardi ISBN 0395616166

Five out of five stars
 The limerick is my favorite form of verse, it is short, yet can be hard to write as you need to make sure you have all the right words. There are 41 limericks in this book and while children are the target audience, the material is offbeat enough to also appeal to adults. All are silly, there is little in the way of serious substance.
 If you enjoy limericks in general or just silly verse in particular, this is a book that you will enjoy. It is simple, clean fun for all ages.
