    I wish I had this when I was a kid!I’m a huge fan of the strange, odd, and macabre. When I was younger I devoured stuff by Charles Addams, Tim Burton and Roald Dahl. That being said, this book of rhymes by Elias Zapple, this wonderfully twisted, off the wall collection of weird to even weirder characters and stories written in some of the catchiest poetry I have read in a long time, this is genius! A modern classic! I just wish this was available when I was about oh, seven or eight years of age. In fact this would be wonderfully appropriate into the tween years.Some of this stuff will be repeated, talked and joked about by young boys and girls for a long time after reading it, especially the collection of mischievous takes on classic children stories and nursery rhymes toward the end of the book. What fun kids will have after reading this book. I am so jealous!Mr. Elias Zapple, we all know you are as old as dirt, maybe even older. Why oh why didn’t you write this thirty years ago!? What great memories this would have made! But oh well, I have it now! And I’ll read it again and again!!Get this book!

    I thought this book was quite funny, if a little gory at times, but we had two little visitors, 6 and 8, over the weekend and they thought it was hilarious! Beyond hilarious, actually because the 8 year old had to read it over and over again to the six year old.They are outside now building a slug farm. So, great result. I would definitely recommend Zapple's Rhymes to children with a quirky sense of humor.I look forward to reading the Duke and Michel series too.

    I was determined to dislike this book. After all, I'm the founder of the Bloomsbury slug sanctuary. I tried not to laugh, I really did. However, within a minute a strange twitchy feeling wiggled through my nose and I heard the sound of giggling. My own!Mr. Zapple sounds an unusual sort of person and I can only express sympathy for his neighbour, Dieter, but oh! 'Sweet Cherry Pie'!! Actually perhaps I'd better not mention the cherry pie, it will only give kids ideas. So ignore that. But 'Humpty Dumpty'! I was totally in tune with Mr. Zapple's re-working of this ancient nursery rhyme. If not his treatment of his poor slugs.I battled on, frowning as much as possible. I managed not to laugh at Cinderella and the Fairy Godmother's ID (this was quite a battle), but once I reached Goldilocks all was lost.A disgraceful and wildly amusing book. With the emphasis on wild. Out of control, even. You'll need to ensure that it's downloaded to a secure location within your device, so that it doesn't give the other books ideas. I really shouldn't recommend it, but I can't help myself. Congrats to the illustrator for managing to cope with this tough assignment. Slugs rule!

    "Elias Zapple's Rhymes from the Cabbage Patch: Illustrated Children's Book" by Elias Zapple is an extremely funny book of hilariously absurd, funny and often very witty rhymes.Split into two halfs the first section is mainly about odd characters, like Zapple's neighbour Dieter, specific slugs and whatever one might not expect next. Rhymes work always best with the unexpected and Zapple has plenty of those trumps of his sleeves. I hate the phrase but I did laugh out loud to the extent that my neighbours enquired about my wellbeing. over the garden fence.The second half of the book contains rhymes based on nursery rhymes, all with delicious twists and unexpected added elements.If you like off-the-wall humour this is definitely for you, original, quirky, mindful senseless and hugely enjoyable.

    Elias Zapple has a very witty (and a bit dark) sense of humour, which is exactly why I love his work so much. I am not usually a fan of the twisted, but this book had me laughing out loud at a few spots! Some of the poems rhyme, some do not. Some rhyme and then have a sudden, deadpan line at the end which I love.The fairytales are new takes on old classics. If you've ever wanted to see Cinderella get her revenge or Little Red join forces with the wolf ala Bonnie and Clyde, then you will love this book. Check it out or be slimed!This book is top shelf!***This book was featured on Destiny's Book Dig Up and is a winner of the unofficial Top Shelf book award***

    Elias Zapple's Rhymes from the Cabbage Patch by Elias Zapple is one of these most exciting books that I have read to my grand kids in a while!Chalked full of nonsense and rhymes and such cleverness from the author, the illustrations are just as wild and wacky!I am still amused!

    The most mischievous take on all those classic children's stories and nursery rhymes that I ever read. I got it for my kids, but then found myself laughing too hard myself, turning pages, asking for more.We read Duke and Michel before, so were confidently expecting something delightfully wild. And it was, maybe even wilder, and maybe even funnier, although it's impossible to compare one hilarious read to another. Even my oldest, a 12 years old non-reader, was grabbing my Kindle to read some more.What can I say? I love this author's humor, love the subtle sarcasm, love the illustrations, love the way he seems to never be afraid of crossing some lines. I'd say this book is as much for the grownups as it is for the children, and teens, and pre-teens. The humor and twists and turns alone would warrant all ages' attention.Off to look for more books by this author!

    Reading this book, I started out in hope of finding rhymes that flowed and made some sort of sense. I soon gave up on that, but was gradually getting sucked into the weird, gruesome, zaniness of the world according to Zapple. It made me smile, and I suspect that many adults and kids who crave the unusual will end up smiling while reading this book too!Whether rhymes about characters in Elias Zapple's other books, or rhymes to completely tear apart what you thought you knew about nursery rhymes, this book delivers in unpredictability and laughs. Read it and see what you think! (Just don't expect anything ordinary, and bring along a robust sense of humour!)

    With an author name like Elias Zapple, you can surely expect some very crazy stuff. Whoever it's aimed at, it is a fun book with some ghoulish rhymes that work fine by me, thank you very much. Think of it as a Dr Seuss type book but darker (and much much much more fun).DISCLAIMER: I did not receive a free copy in exchange for a review. Nor did I buy my copy from Amazon or Barnes and Noble. I bought it from another retailer and loved it so much I decided to leave a review on amazon and Goodreads. Thank you.

    The perfect book to get a reading-phobic tween reading. Along with the delightful illustrations, a tongue in cheek humor runs through each poem that will keep the reader reading. Each poem is a tiny, humorous tale told with a great deal of rhythm and fun. It reminds me a bit of Shel Silverstein with a Brit accent and a love of animals.These fun poems my become a new guilty pleasure for your library avoidant offspring. For .99, how could you go wrong?

    I *love* Zapple's books. They are so brilliant and fun for my cousins, they adore Elias's stories. We should always got to trust kids!Can't wait for another new Zapple's book, they became my favourite gift for the kids I know!

    Elias with his humorous writing is directed to young readers with a very witty sense of humour. The second half of the book has rhymes based on nursery rhymes, all with twists. I was gifted the book for an honest and true review. Great Fun Rhyming Book for children very much enjoyed.

    Silly book of rhymes. Re-tellings of popular classics. I read it first to see if it would be appropriate for my kids. Not quite on all of them, but there were a few safe enough share. I loved poetry when I was young myself and this proves poetry can be fun :)

    This is a book for the kid in all of us, but not for children. Zapple has a wicked sense of humor which will make you laugh out loud at certain points. This gets five stars for it's originality.

    Elias Zapple’s original rhymes are wicked fun! Very clever and well done. Maybe this is for kids – the grandkids certainly enjoyed it - but it’s for the young at heart as well. I loved it.

    This is dark humor set to rhyme, which I enjoyed, but I wouldn't place this book into the hands of the wee ones without parental guidance. Of course, the old traditional German fairy tales probably shocked more than these tales will. However, don't expect Mr. Zapples's nursery rhymes to have happy endings. I found the rhymes about slugs to be the most entertaining, and they may be the most palatable to children. The tales, not necessarily the slugs, as were enjoyed by the narrator in the rhymes. The cabbage tales of war also struck an excellent note and were among my favorites.
