About the Author:

Jack Prelutsky was born in Brooklyn, New York.He attended New York City Public Schools and studied voice at the High School of Music and Art.He enrolled in Hunter College in Manhattan but left soon after "to become a beatnik."Jack has been a cab driver, a busboy, a photographer, a furniture mover, a potter, and a folk singer.He enjoys bicycling, playing racquetball, woodworking and cooking.He lives in Washington State with his wife Carolynn and a vast collection of poetry books and frogs in every shape, size, and form -- except living!There was a time when Jack couldn't stand poetry.In grade school he had a teacher who left him with the impression that poetry was the literary equivalent of liver.He rediscovered poetry in his twenties, and he decided that he would write about things that kids really cared about, and that he would strive to make poetry delightful.He has been writing poetry for more than twenty years and has published more than three dozen books for children."

From the Inside Flap:

Illus. in full color. "These nonsense verses combine the domestic and the gross, deadpan and slapstick, with a lilting rhythm and satisfying rhyme. The poets are well-known contemporaries including Prelutsky, Silverstein, Kuskin, Lobel, Viorst, and many more. The design is ebullient. Start or end story hour with these verses, and kids will know reading's a pleasure."--(starred) "Booklist.
