The Underwear Salesman: and Other Jobs for Better or Verse by J. Patrick Lewis


What would you like to be when you grow up… an underwear salesman? Or a highway line painter? Or maybe even a bubble bath tester? The Underwear Salesman: and Other Jobs for Better or Verse is a humorous poetry book on different occupations. The thing I like the best is that the first poem is about librarians! Some of the poems were just okay, but many of them made me laugh out loud. The Sword Swallower was my favorite! The collage type pictures that accompany each poem are fun and go great with the poems and the mood of the book. If you like poetry make sure you check this book out! Maybe in these times of economic struggles it may even encourage you to change jobs! Haha!
