About the Author:

Jack Prelutsky is the best-selling author of more than fifty books of poetry, including The New Kid on the Block, illustrated by James Stevenson, and Stardines Swim High Across the Sky, illustrated by Carin Berger. Jack Prelutsky lives in Washington State.



Carin Berger is an award-winning designer and illustrator. Her cut-paper collages are made using ephemera, such as catalogues, old books, receipts, letters, and ticket stubs. In a starred review for Finding Spring, Kirkus praised the “Exceptional, exhilarating artwork perfectly suited for a story about anticipation, discovery and joy.” The Little Yellow Leaf was a 2008 New York Times Best Illustrated Children’s Books selection, and in a starred review, Publishers Weekly called her A Perfect Day “lovely.” She is also the illustrator of the acclaimed Stardines Swim High Across the Sky and Behold the Bold Umbrellaphant, both by Jack Prelutsky, among other books. She lives with her family in New York City.

From AudioFile:

The first Children's Poet Laureate for the United States reads and sings from three of his poetry collections. Selections combine animals, objects, and living things into unique beings. Beware a "radishark" if you are swimming or let a "ballpoint penguin" help you take notes. "What a Day It Was at School" provides a look at school from the students' point of view in adept Prelutsky fashion. It's a treat to hear the poet recite his own work. While it's well known that many of Prelutsky's poems can be set to the music of familiar tunes, the tunes for these poems are original and underscore the pleasure Prelutsky takes in performing his own work. The images--from "pop-up toadsters" to "solitary spatuloons"--linger in the listener's ear. A.R.
