Taking a swipe at stuffiness, this sly collection shows Prelutsky’s robust appreciation of the absurd. Humour at its best from one of America’s funniest poets.
At the farm’s karate festival
the lambs and mules were tops.
The mules excelled at kicking,
but the lambs had better chops.
Over one hundred hilarious poems from a poet who has created a world where it rains pigs and noodles, hapless Peter turns into a parking meter, it’s awkward being taller than the average giraffe and where you should watch out for something lurking deep in the refrigerator. You can meet an underdog who is overweight, dancing hippopotami, sniffing snutterwudds, the world’s fastest turtle and Scottish pigs on stilts

A Pizza the Size of the Sun
“Prelutsky’s robust appreciation of the absurd percolates througout this playful, kid-friendly verse, while Stevenson wrings a wealth of emotion and humour out of just a few dashes of ink.”
It’s Raining Pigs and Noodles
Prelutsky and Stevenson have cooked up another hilarious storm, so get out the umbrella – and make it a big one!
'Never, never disagree
with a shark beneath the sea
lest you feel a sudden crunch
and discover you are lunch'
