Kookiest hat -- Shortest street -- Talkingest bird -- Longest traffic jam -- Stone skipping record -- Smallest American newspaper -- Longest time a message was in a bottle at sea -- Tallest roller coaster -- largest mantle of bees -- Shortest snake -- Dumbest dinosaur -- Tallest Christmas tree -- most kisses -- Longest time stuck in an elevator -- Most plates spinning -- Longest time a human remained standing -- Tallest scarecrow -- Biggest potato -- Sonnet to the greatest distance hang gliding by a woman -- Winningest woman of the Iditarod Dog Sled Race -- Biggest pumpkin -- Crookedest building -- Most live scorpions eaten by a human -- Most cobras kissed consecutively -- Highest air on a skateboard.
Who has kissed the most cobras? Eaten the most live scorpions? Sailed highest on a skateboard? Been stuck the longest in an elevator? These and 21 other vexing superlatives are the subject matter of this zany collection of verse by one of America's most well-loved poets, J. Patrick Lewis. Comic illustrations by Keith Graves make this the funniest, wackiest, rhyming-est book on the shelf.
