If you read Mediabistro’s Galley Cat, you may have seen this, but I couldn’t resist passing it along. Cheryl Kline, a children’s book editor at Scholastic’s Arthur A. Levine Books division was inspired to write her own literary lyrics to Sir Mix-a-Lot’s “Baby Got Back.”

It will make you laugh, much needed in this busy season. I wish I had the time and the talent to write such an amusing bit.

Cheers to Cheryl and her blog, Brooklyn Arden.

Just a teasing excerpt:

[Sir Reads-a-Lot]
I like big books and I can not lie
You other brothers can’t deny
That when a girl walks in with an big fat book
And glasses on her face
You’re all thrilled, wanna talk to her quick
Cause you notice she’s reading Dickens
Deep in the tote she’s carrying
I’m hooked and I can’t stop staring…”
