About the Book

Jack Prelutsky is widely acknowledged as the poet laureate of the younger generation. (And many people would happily see him crowned with no age qualification.) The New Kid on the Block and Something Big Has Been Here are household words wherever there are kids.

Here is another wondrously rich, varied, clever - and always funny - collection. Meet Miss Misinformation, Swami Gourami, and Gladiola Gloppe (and her Soup Shoppe), and delight in a backwards poem, a poem that ever ends, and scores of others that will be changed, read, and loved by readers of every age. The Prelutsky-Stevenson duo is irresistible. Whether you begin at the beginning or just open the book at random, you won't stop smiling.

Educator and Librarian Resources

Critical Praise

“Prelutsky loosens his agile imagination in words, while around the pages cavort Stevenson’s interpretive line drawings, shimmy-shimmying to the beat. Terrific.” —Kirkus Reviews (pointered review)

“This book should be required reading for those out there who claim they don’t like poetry.” —School Library Journal (starred review)

“Poetry’s bad boys are back again, teaming up to take another swipe at stuffiness.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“If a laugh is what’s needed, just hand over the keys and let these two drive.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)
