When you're in the world of Jack Prelutsky, anything can happen. Ogres run wild, dragons sing, and baby uggs hatch. . . . Frogs wear red suspenders in a rainstorm of pigs and noodles. . . . Scranimals gallivant under a pizza the size of the sun. . . .

Even the new kid on the block can see that the nation's first Children's Poet Laureate is something big. So, what are you waiting for? Let your parents think you're sleeping, and ride a purple pelican to a land where imagination is king, ridiculous rhymes rule, and laughing out loud is guaranteed! These are Jack Prelutsky's greatest hits!

This magnificent treasury of more than one hundred of Jack Prelutsky's most celebrated verses, along with fifteen all-new poems, is a tribute to his gifts to children's literature over the past forty years. Lushly illustrated by rising star Brandon Dorman and featuring a CD with classic performances by the poet himself, it is the perfect volume for any poetry lover's bookshelf.

Fun silly poems, we enjoyed them. There is something for everybody in this collection of poems. It is really great that the author gives examples of activities that one could do as a class that are related to many of his poems. I think this would be an awesome classroom book.

My children love this book! I read it over and over to my 4 yr old, my 8 yr old loves hearing me read it or reading it on her own. Prelutsky's poems are hilarious, he is the best! We have several of his poetry books. The illustrations in this book are beautiful and colorful. Highly recommend this book!

I purchased this book to bring into my son's 2nd grade classroom as a "mystery reader". The children were captured by the whimsical and colorful illustrations and the funny subject matter. It was difficult to choose which poem to read as they are all fantastic. When he arrived home my son was thrilled to find out that I purchased the book and it was ours to keep. We use the extended activities on rainy days for fun!

A wonderful book, full of wit and great illustrations. Perfect for a "sit in my lap" and "read together" session with a 4-5 year old.
