You certainly don't need to be a belligerent child to appreciate these silly rhymes by Mystery Science Theater 3000's and Cinematic Titanic's Trace Beaulieu - but you may learn a thing or two about handling infected pets or living dangerously through sledding. While the subject matter may make you a bit queasy, you'll delight in the perfect storytelling encapsulated in each poem. Each selection is a dark and distasteful delight - a fascinating collection of raw honesty, cool understatement and looming tragedy, all brought to life by the whimsical illustrations by Len Peralta. Silly Rhymes for Belligerent Children isn't the book you'll keep on the bookcase for decades. It's the book you'll keep under your bed within easy reach so you can page through it long after you've committed all the poems to memory.
