SHUT UP YOU'RE FINE POEMS FOR VERY BAD CHILDREN

Author(s): HUDGINS ANDREW

Poetry

The wickedly funny collection of nursery rhymes for the South Park generation-illustrated by the incomparable Barry Moser. Andrew Hudgins, Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award-nominated author of the critically acclaimed "Ecstatic in the Poison," brings us this new collection of laugh-out-loud tongue-in-cheek nursery rhymes that do for poetry what Edward Gorey did for cartooning. Illustrated by the distinguished artist and graphic designer Barry Moser, Shut Up, You're Fine! includes such heart-warming titles as "Playing Houth," "The Thumping of the Bed," "Two Starving Kids in Africa," and "Daddy, Are We Meat?
