9780061451355: It's Raining Pigs & Noodles

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.

Review:

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.”
Publishers Weekly

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!
Amazon

From the Back Cover:

'Never, never disagree
with a shark beneath the sea
lest you feel a sudden crunch
and discover you are lunch'

If you want stuffy poetry, you've picked the wrong book! Puns, jokes, wordplay, wit and slapstick – Jack Prelutsky style – fizzle with humour and silliness. Witty and inventive illustrations by James Stevenson mark the duo as the 'bad boys' of the poetry world. This book is bursting at the seams with over one hundred poems and illustrations and comes with a guarantee to make you laugh and laugh.

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers, United States, 2008. CD-Audio. Book Condition: New. abridged edition. 175 x 142 mm. Language: English . Brand New. Here are more poems bursting to be listened to, chanted, laughed over, and remembered. It would be hard to find a school-age 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 listeners 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: Listen to a poem once and you will love it. Listen to it several times and it will be part of you forever.
