If you're looking for a nice happy book

put this one down and run away quickly

Forgive me sweetness and good cheer are boring

Inspired by William Carlos Williams's famous poem "This Is Just to Say," Newbery Honor author Gail Carson Levine delivers a wickedly funny collection of her own false apology poems, imagining how tricksters really feel about the mischief they make. Matthew Cordell's clever and playful line art lightheartedly captures the spirit of the poetry. This is the perfect book for anyone who's ever apologized . . . and not really meant it.

I usually love Gail's books, but, no offense, I hated this one. :(
Very disappointing.
