Amanda Ate an Orange

Amanda ate an orange
And an olive and a peach.
Since then her teacher always keeps
The crayons out of reach.

"This blackboard is "chalk-full" of loony mayhem! Kenn Nesbitt must have spent a lot of time in the principal's office. Where else can you get a sense of humor this rich?" -- J. Patrick Lewis, author of A Hippopotomusn’t and many other books of verse.

"I remember school, and it wasn't funny, yet these poems are hilarious. What gives?" -- Calef Brown, author of Polkabats and Octopus Slacks

Kenn Nesbitt is a ten-foot tall, time-traveling robot from the fourteenth dimension. He lives in a creaky old house in Spokane, Washington, with his wife, two kids, several lazy cats, countless mice, and a fish. If you can't find him at home, he's probably writing goofy poems for kids at or visiting schools from coast to coast.
