We gave it a B

Veteran writer Eve Merriam (The Inner City Mother Goose) is one of the silliest poets around. Sometimes. She can mash syllables together in a way that’s as funny as it is unlikely. Her ice cream fountain has such intriguing flavors as “pistachio burp” and “slime of lime slurp,” “french-fried nectarine” and “drip-dry tangerine.” A few of the pickle poems in A Poem for a Pickle: Funnybone Verses shouldn’t have made the cut. The rest will make you smile. B
