We gave it a B+

The verses in More Surprises don’t all zoom past the red line on the silly meter, but they’re just right for early readers. They’re divided into child-friendly subjects like “Body Parts,” “Good Night,” and “Boats, Trains, and Planes.” The wide range of authors — Christina Rossetti and Carl Sandburg as well as such contemporary poets as Jack Prelutsky — make these collections more surprising than most children’s anthologies; the large type and paperback format make them especially approachable and affordable.
