Hennie Aucamp bewys met hierdie bundel dat hy 'n ewe vernuftige skrywer van kinderverse as van kabarettekste en gedigte is. Baie van die versies verwys na eietydse dinge soos sms'e, pizzas en Croc-skoene wat vir vandag se kinders aantreklik sal wees. Die meeste van die versies handel egter oor die gewone dinge van die kinderwereld: oumas en oupas, mammas en pappas, troeteldiere, speelgoed, badtyd, voeltjies, goggas en paddas. Aucamp skram egter nie daarvan weg om effens meer gesofistikeerde verwysings byna ongesiens in die verse in te glip nie, soos in die onsinversie oor oom Nathan die Ou Wyse en die verhaal van "Oorlede Dina Sourus", wat die verse ook vir die voorlesers genotvol sal maak. Slim woordspel, vindingryke ryme en Aucamp se trefsekere gevoel vir ritme maak dat hierdie versies gou onder die klassieke kinderverse in Afrikaans gaan tel.
Grootmense praat darem vreeslik snaaks! Eers is dit oor blompotte langs jou kop en geld wat nie op rûe groei nie, dan weer oor honde en katte wat uit die lug uit reën en kraaie wat tonge steel… verbeel jou!
Maar wat nog snaakser is, is dat prinses Vlooi al hierdie dinge kan sien wanneer sy haar groot pienk bril opsit.
Wanneer haar bril haar bruin oë soos twee heerlike sjokoladekoekies laat lyk, weet Vlooi sommer dadelik: nou gaan die poppe dans. Regtig!
“Glorious.” —Kirkus Reviews
