Fifty Minutes of Unadulterated Fun in Zapple-world

What made the experience of listening to Elias Zapple's Rhymes from the Cabbage Patch (Zany, Funny, Illustrated Poems For Ages 9+ Book 1) the most enjoyable?

The combination of Zapple's zany mind and Richard Mann's playful delivery is perfect for this humorous and inventive odyssey.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I love Zapple's slugs. Shall I tell you about the slug that shocks? Nah, better make you listen for yourself. Cinders and Goldilocks came a close second, but I am a Zapple slug fan. As Zapple shows you slugs as you've never thought to consider them, she transports you to a world where the commonplace becomes extraordinary.

Which scene was your favorite?

I can't call out a single scene, since the book is so well conceived and executed. But I should warn you about the creepy-crawlies and their bloody trails. (That's a hint.)

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

This book removed me from the commonplace, lightened my load, and made me happy when I really needed some relief. Highly recommended for its ability to totally transmute reality and you with it.

Any additional comments?

Loved it. Long live Zapple, slugs and all.

Wacky, wild and zany!

Would you consider the audio edition of Elias Zapple's Rhymes from the Cabbage Patch (Zany, Funny, Illustrated Poems For Ages 9+ Book 1) to be better than the print version?

Although this audio edition by itself is enthralling and entertaining it also compliments the print edition perfectly!

What other book might you compare Elias Zapple's Rhymes from the Cabbage Patch (Zany, Funny, Illustrated Poems For Ages 9+ Book 1) to and why?

This book is comparable to work by Roald Dahl but it is very original and laced with Elias Zapple's twisted sense of humor!

Which scene was your favorite?

I love Elias Zapple's take on classic nursery rhymes. They are very off the wall and funny!

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Zany, zany and even more zany!
