Thirty poems from the author of Dirty Dog Boogie and Nothing Beats a Pizza! Sometimes I'm a genius. / Sometimes I'm a whiz. / Sometimes I's a cabbagehead / But even when I is, / Dazzling dreams are going on, / New ideas rock, / My mind is always mine / And knows / I'll listen to it talk. In her third collection of poetry, celebrated author Loris Lesynski focuses on the often puzzling ways in which our brains work. With her usual wit and irreverence, Loris presents jazzy, fun poems that speak to all of us. Who hasn't been perplexed by spelling or chased in the night by an idea that won't go away? Once again, Loris demonstrates how much fun poetry, and everyday life, can be! Her poetry begs to be read out loud, and children and adults will find themselves unable to resist snapping their fingers and chanting along!

This collection of clever and funny poems, chants, and word games explores ideas and where they come from... The colorful cartoon illustrations convey they humor of the poems and reflect the author's joy in using words.--Doris Losey"School Library Journal" (01/01/2004)
Highly accessible as children will be able to feel their rhythm... The color illustrations... exude humor and originality.--Carol-Ann Hoyte"Resource Links" (02/01/2004)
Mirroring the facetiousness and irony of Shel Silverstein and Jack Prelutsky, Lois Lesynski has created another collection of poetry for children. The poems in Cabbagehead explore issues ranging from Who Invented Socks? to Wet Pets. Lesynski's wonderful ink, water colour and coloured pencil illustrations are the highlight of this work. The book incorporates a lot of fun, whimsy, and satire.... The illustrations work to greatly enhance the text, making them an integral part of the humour. Cabbagehead is a light and simple collection of poems that many children will enjoy. Recommended.--Christina Neigel"Canadian Materials" (12/12/2003)
