I read a lot of books and I must say Twimericks by Lou Brooks, is some of the most fun I’ve ever had reading a book.
What is Twimericks?
A Twimerick is a limerick added to a tongue – twister.
“It’s supposed to be a kids’ book,” says Brooks. “Or at least I think it’s a kids’ book. But when adults start to read it aloud to one another, they seem to get hooked on it.”
Being the author and illustrator of this quirky, little book, Brooks insists that you read the book aloud and as quickly as you can. He says, “I’ve wanted Twimericks to be a portable party that you can carry around with you.” Brooks is right. Bring this book out at any gathering and hilarity is sure to follow.
Here’s an example of what you can expect to find among the pages of Twimericks;
Fred’s False Teeth
Fred’s false teeth fell five hundred feet,
From the fifty-fourth floor onto 45th Street,
Fred flagged a fleet florist,
With five ferns from the forest,
Who said, “Fred, now how will you eat?”
Is your tongue tied in a knot yet?
Twimericks would make a great stocking-stuffer or gift for anyone (young or mature) on your holiday list this year.
