Oh, No! Where Are My Pants?

Ever have one of those days? The narrators of these fifteen poems have. They've had worm-in-the-apple days, friends-moving-away days, even forgetting-my-pants days! If you've ever wondered whether anyone else knows what it's like to have a really bad day, this special collection of poignant — and funny — poems is for you.

That New Animal
