Yes, Dr. Seuss came to my mind too as I read this entertaining poem with a simple but important message to all. Great job.

This was so much fun to read. I love the town and people you created. I want to see pictures too. I especially like the smile that was a frown because he was upside down. Great use of the topic!

How fun and creative! I thought of Lewis Carroll when I was reading it (and, yes, Dr. Seuss, too). Great job!!

So cute--very much like Dr. Suess, and that's a huge compliment. I could picture this illustrated like Dr. Suess' books. Great job with the topic.

Shades of Dr. Seuss, indeed!! :) Very nice job of rhyming and story telling with a great message as the "topper"!

It is nice to see that your ability to tell good, amusing stories transfers so well into the poetry genre, too. This would be fun to see illustrated!

Reads like a Dr. Seuss story which are still my favorite to read in the world at 47 years old!!

Read it to Bill. Put a real smile on his face as he sipped his morning coffee. Creative and so much fun. You are so good at finding where the humor lives.

Very amusing, and with a great message. Reminded me of the 'Phantom Tollbooth' a bit, my favorite kids book.
