Overview

The first children's poetry collection by award-winning writer Calvin Trillin -- illustrated by acclaimed illustrator Roz Chast! "I know this shot will guard me from the measles and the mumps -- Diseases that could leave me with two different kinds of lumps. I'm glad the stuff that's in the shot will keep me safe from harm, But can't they put the needle into someone else's arm? If so, my older sister is the person I'd prefer. Could Jenny get this shot for me? I've done so much for her." Get ready to laugh out loud with Calvin Trillin's first collection of poems for children (and nearby grown-ups). Enjoy the whimsical cartoon illustrations by New York Times bestselling illustrator Roz Chast as you find out if Justin is "the awfulest kid in the class," if there's anything that Matt won't eat, and if you can send back a new baby brother. Inspired by some of Calvin Trillin's real-life experiences, No Fair! No Fair! And Other Jolly Poems of Childhood celebrates the humor of familiar everyday topics.
