About the Author
Bruce Lansky has been crowned the "King of Giggle Poetry" by his elementary school admirers. As editor of the successful poetry anthologies, Rolling in the Aisles, If Kids Ruled the School, A Bad Case of the Giggles, Kids Pick the Funniest Poems, No More Homework! No More Tests! and Miles of Smiles, he learned what makes children laugh by testing poems on panels of elementary and middle-school kids. He used this feedback to create books of his own original poetry, If Pigs Could Fly...and Other Deep Thoughts, and My Dog Ate My Homework.
