Publisher's Description

The poet laureate of the young set is back, with his artist laureate collaborator, to "take another swipe at stuffiness."- Here are more than one hundred poems bursting to be read, chanted, laughed over, and remembered.

It would be hard to find a schoolage kid who has not read or heard a Prelutsky poem and who does not want to hear another. He plays with the language and encourages readers to revel in the game. Puns, jokes, wordplay and shape play, wit, silliness, slapstick, and joy abound. Some of the poems are about people, some are about animals. And some are about things that never were (and that one hopes never will be). Be warned: Read a poem once and you will love it. Read it several times and it will be part of you forever.

Editorial Reviews

“The reigning czars of silliness are back on the warpath, wreaking poetic havoc with yet another deliciously sly volume. Hats off to these two glorious goofballs!”

“The verse is fresh and catchy with sparkling wordplay and unexpected rhymes, and line drawings the humor with verve.”
