Staff Reviews


Prelutsky's poems are clever, fun, and the rhyme and rhythm make them accessible to young readers. I choose one of his poems each year for our school's "Poem in Your Pocket" day and share them with delighted students.

— Joci Kelleher, Principal of Crocker Highlands Elementary

Description


From beloved and bestselling poet Jack Prelutsky come over 100 hilarious poems about strange creatures and people—from jellyfish stew to a bouncing mouse, to the very unexpected new kid! For fans of Shel Silverstein and Louis Sachar's Wayside School series. “The illustrations bring the frivolity to a fever pitch.”—School Library Journal.

Open this book to any page to begin your exploration. Here are poems about things that you may never have thought about before. You'll be introduced to jellyfish stew, a bouncing mouse, a ridiculous dog, and a boneless chicken. You'll learn why you shouldn't argue with a shark, eat a dinosaur, or have an alligator for a pet. You'll meet the world's worst singer and the greatest video game player in history. You'll even find an invitation to a dragon's birthday party....Your friends are invited too.

“It’s the author’s joyous sense of the absurd that propels the reader from page to page.”—Horn Book (starred review)
