When you're in the world of Jack Prelutsky, anything can happen. Ogres run wild, dragons sing, and baby uggs hatch. . . . Frogs wear red suspenders in a rainstorm of pigs and noodles. . . . Scranimals gallivant under a pizza the size of the sun. . . .

Even the new kid on the block can see that the nation's first Children's Poet Laureate is something big. So, what are you waiting for? Let your parents think you're sleeping, and ride a purple pelican to a land where imagination is king, ridiculous rhymes rule, and laughing out loud is guaranteed! These are Jack Prelutsky's greatest hits!

This magnificent treasury of more than one hundred of Jack Prelutsky's most celebrated verses, along with fifteen all-new poems, is a tribute to his gifts to children's literature over the past forty years.

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.



Brandon Dorman lives in Puyallup, Washington, and is the creator of Pirates of the Sea! and Santa's Stowaway, and the illustrator of Jack Prelutsky's Be Glad Your Nose Is on Your Face, as well as Halloween Night, by Marjorie Dennis Murray.

From Booklist:

This picture book–size anthology brings together more than 100 of Prelutsky’s poems with 15 original selections written just for this volume. Fans of the first U.S. Children’s Poet Laureate will recognize his trademark themes and unbounded silliness in the new works, which include tongue twisters (“The wily wizard Wabaloo / will wisely waste no words with you”), sly wordplay (“You’d better beware / of the Blitter, because it’s out to obliterate you”), and mischievous twists of meaning (“I buttoned my supper, / and swallowed my shirt. / I ate my pajamas, / and wore my dessert”). Dorman, who illustrated Prelutsky’s The Wizard (2007), once again captures both the subjects and spirit of the poetry in polished, colorful, digitally manipulated artwork that makes the most of the playful contradictions in the words. The wide, captivating cast of dragons, ogres, and ghouls are at once gruesome and endearing; platters of food combine revolting and delicious elements; and Dorman puts an imaginative spin on Prelutsky’s wildest characters, such as the tri-headed, backup-singing column of goo that illustrates “Song of the Gloopy Gloppers.” A CD and frequent puzzles and other activities round out this welcome greatest-hits collection that’s sure to make new fans, while pleasing Prelutsky’s legion of established followers. Grades K-5. --Gillian Engberg
