Really? Words that rhyme with snot

I have to say that usually I am a huge fan of Harriet Ziefert’s work….which is why I was surprised by the content of one of her new books, Crab Cab (the latest in a series of flip books).  This vivid pop art book  works on words that rhyme.  The  first page shows a girl with two smaller characters — they all have blue snot running out of their noses…”snot” is tied to “tot”…ok…so keep going and then you’ll find an image of a “hot pot” paired with “snot pot” that depicts a witch dripping snot into her pot.  I agree with School Library Journal’s comment that “Children will be instantly attracted to the bold, colorful pictures in these books”..but do you really need a picture book that focuses on snot?
