Review of Eanie Meanie Hate Zucchini

"The poems are all written from a child’s point of view and spin goofy tales about camping, flat tires, and kindergarten, with a few semi-absurdist rhymes about exotic animals in non-exotic locales thrown in for good measure. The rhyming couplet is king here… [and] McCallum’s verse is strong and appropriately light."
