Inappropriate for young, elementary children.

Very dark, warped, and grossly disturbing. It is very sad that innocent children's poems and songs are turned around to represent death and torment and gross activity such as picking noses and spreading buggars on toast...! Lord have mercy!

This title has:

Too much violence
not rated for age

Thrilling illustrations; songs mostly so-so

The premise and great illustrations caught my eye...but once my kids and I looked through the book more carefully, we agreed that only some of the songs were really funny/clever enough. Not quite enough worthwhile song versions to be worth buying the book -- maybe borrow it from the library. If you like the illustrations, take a look at Gris Grimly's version of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, which is has the same charmingly eerie look plus good content.
