Get ready to laugh out loud with Calvin Trillin's first collection of poems for children (and nearby grown-ups). Enjoy the whimsical cartoon illustrations by New York Times bestselling illustrator Roz Chast as you find out if Justin is "the awfulest kid in the class," if there's anything that Matt won't eat, and if you can send back a new baby brother.

Inspired by some of Calvin Trillin's real-life experiences, No Fair! No Fair! And Other Jolly Poems of Childhood celebrates the humor of familiar everyday topics.

  • Praise for Messages From My Father by Calvin Trillin:
    "As a writer, Calvin Trillin is good company, with all the qualities that make a 'great seat' at a dinner party: witty, not cutting; smart, not overbearing; and amusing enough to save the day if a waiter has bad aim." -- The New York Times

    Praise for Can't We Talk About Something More Pleasant? by Roz Chast:
