Reviewed by Lois J Wickstrom for Readers' Favorite

Limerick Comics, written by Robert Hoyman and illustrated by Steve Feldman, is a collection of original limericks about wild and varied topics such as the color of octopus blood, what Jesters do for a living, the function of all four tentacles on a slug, and who was the original “man on the flying trapeze” (Hint: a well-known article of clothing is named for him.) Did you ever wonder what Pharaohs wore for bling? Or gram-for-gram, who is stronger – a human or an ant? How roller-coasters were invented? Or how fruit flies help scientists? I spent hours going through this short picture book, fascinated with the information below each of Robert Hoyman’s charming illustrated limericks. Steve Feldman has drawn clever illustrations for every line of all the limericks.

Whether you are interested in fish, or bats, or woodpeckers, this collection of limericks and the accompanying information will have something you probably didn’t know before but are now glad you do now. Curious readers of any age will find something in Limerick Comics by Robert Hoyman to fascinate and amuse them. You’ll learn about a woman pirate, a fiction book predating the Titanic that told the story of a similar accident, why dinosaurs had gizzards, which tools chimpanzees use, and the meaning of different types of clown costumes. If you have a wide-ranging curiosity, a love of rhyme and rhythm, or just enjoy a good comic, this book has something you’ll enjoy.
