Bananas in my Ears, a reprise

I've just read a review of Bananas in my Ears on Amazon. The author was most indignant about how inappropriate free verse is for children, and says that the book fails to appeal to the target audience, since what child would like free verse? Erm, I know a sample size of 2 is pretty small, but my kids love it! They have managed to master the obviously deeply challenging fact that poems do not have to rhyme, and that poems are about playing with words; something which, in my experience, small children quite enjoy!
