Forgive Me, I Meant to Do It by Gail Carson Levine

False Apology Poems

5 stars
picture book

This is just to say....

Based on the William Carlos Williams poem "This Is Just to Say", this book is full of some of the funniest "apologies" ever.

Some are immediately recognizable fairy tale characters, some are just funny situations, and a few are even directly from the author to the reader.

Mister was amused, though I'm not sure he understood why it was funny.

Boo thought it was hilarious.  She recognized most of the fairy tale-based poems right away and had a lot of fun spotting those.
