5.0 out of 5 stars Show and Tell Gone Wrong..... 4 Mar 2002
By Roz Levine - Published on Amazon.com
Poor Ned, today is show and tell and he has nothing to bring. So he goes to his closet and checks out his stash. "A rusty eggbeater, a toy laser beam,/A handheld electronic spelling machine./A Slinky with kinks and an old ping-pong paddle,/A snow globe that said "Having Fun in Seattle."/He smushed them together with duct tape and glue./He had an invention, but what did it do?" So he points and he clicks and the SHOE on his bed becomes a HOSE spraying cold water. He tries it again and his LAMP becomes a PALM, and it is then that he realizes he'd invented a Mixed-Up Ray, a contraption that takes words and makes crazy anagrams. His AUNT becomes a TUNA, PEAS become APES, and as soon as he points his ray at the kids at school, they begin to change. CATHY becomes a YACHT, NAT an ANT, BRIAN a BRAIN "with a big throbbing thinker",and his teacher, MRS ETON, a MONSTER. But things really become interesting when the class leaves on an art museum field trip..... Mike Reiss has written an engaging, manic romp that gets wilder and sillier with each page turn. His hilarious, rhyming text is full of energy and motion, and complemented by Mike Cressy's bold, bright, and busy cartoon-like illustrations. Together they've authored an entertaining chain of events story with a wonderfully clever solution. Perfect for youngsters 4-8, The Great Show-and-Tell Disaster is a delightful, high-spirited story kids will beg to read again and again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Un-believable and hilarious 7 Mar 2002
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
This book is about a boy that makes a mix-up machine for show and tell. After he makes it everything starts going bonkers!!... This would be a good read aloud book for 4th grade or under. I really liked this book and if you like funny books than I think you will too

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful for kids and their parents!! 13 Dec 2001
By Jay Weinstein - Published on Amazon.com
This is a great book for early readers and more importantly, a lot of fun for parents to read over and over! If Dr. Seuss were to mate with Marge Simpson, Mike Reiss would be the result! Buy and enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Disaster" is a triumph! 20 Oct 2001
By Eclectic Reader - Published on Amazon.com
I don't know who enjoyed this book more -- me or my kids! The imagination displayed in the book is wonderful, the rhymes are hilarious (and inventive), and the story brings back my own "show and tell" days, vividly! I'm already picking up extra copies as holiday gifts for friends and their kids!

5.0 out of 5 stars Cowabunga, dude! 29 Oct 2001
By Matthew Selman - Published on Amazon.com
Bart Simpson has never been more hilarious than in this rollicking adventure! Our spiky-haired hero is in over his head this time, when his out-of-control invention turns Springfield inside out! Mike Reiss deserves a Grammy for this delightfully clever ode -- or should I say -- an ANAGRAMMY! Eat my shorts -- or should I say -- "TEA YM THORSS"
