Put On Your Silly Pants

"Daniel Klawitter’s funny and humane verses are the kind that adults can read to their children, children to themselves, or adults to the children inside themselves. Actual children will giggle over poems about stinky feet and crafty Mr. Booger. Adults will feel a twinge of tenderness as they contemplate “The Land of Babaloo” or listen to a kid who hates his baby brother grudgingly admit that he might love him just a little. Go ahead: Put on your silly pants! It’s time for poems that make you smile."

—Joseph Hutchison, author of The World As Is: New & Selected Poems, 1972-2015, and former Poet Laureate of Colorado
