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


I'd rather take baths
with a man-eating shark,
or wrestle a lion
alone in the dark,
eat spinach and liver,
pet ten porcupines,
than tackle the homework
my teacher assigns.

Jellyfish stew,
I'm loony for you,
I dearly adore you,
oh, truly I do,
you're creepy to see,
revolting to chew,
you slide down inside
with a hullabaloo.
