Welcome to The Friday 56 hosted by Freda’s Voice.


This is a really fun meme!

The only rules are to grab a book (any book), turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader and find a sentence or a few (no spoilers) that grabs you and post it.

Then go over to Freda’s Voice and leave your link so we can visit your 56!

My 56 for this week is from:

My Hippo Has The Hiccups

and Other Poems I Totally Made Up

by  Kenn Nesbitt

Illustrated by Ethan Long



Genre: Children’s Humorous Poetry

From Page 56 in the hardcover. Track 22 on the CD.

This is an excerpt from the poem titled: My Nostril Smells Awesome

My nostril smells awesome, so I have a plan

to sit and enjoy it as long as I can.

Don’t ask how it happened; I really can’t say.

Perhaps it’s my finger that’s smelling this way.


Read on if you want to know more.

My Review

I just loved this book. It’s filled with quirky and fun poems that your kids will giggle over. There’s also a CD that includes the author reading some of his favorite poems and telling some jokes.

I’m not much on poems. I do have a couple of collections I revisit from time to time. This collection had me coming back over and over. Every time I opened the book, I had to share some of the poems out loud. My mother and son loved those times as much as I did.

And I enjoyed the fun illustrations sprinkled throughout the book too. Couldn’t help but smile.

Looking for a rip snorting, rib tickling good time. Grab a copy and get to it! You’ll have a belly full or laughter and a heart full of glee. I’ll bet you love this collection every bit as much as your children will.

    LOL sounds like too much fun! :-) Happy weekend!

  4. LOLOLOLOL this book sounds super entertaining and quirky. The poem you chose an excerpt from reminds me a bit of Shel Silverstein, if I’m being honest, and I adored him when I was younger (and still do today, if I’m keeping being honest.) Thank you so much for sharing!

    Here is my Friday 56, if you’re interested in checking it out. No pressure or worries if you’re not, though! Happy book-ing to you in the near future, and happy Friday. Keep rockin’! <3

    This certainly sounds great fun – maybe a stocking filler for one of the grandchildren:))
