"A generous collection with a distinctly upbeat tone, this gives a taste of the best poets writing for children over the last several decades. Lobel's drawings imbue the whole with action and graphic images as inventive as the verse. Successfully geared to meet home, school, and library needs."
— (starred) "Booklist."

He has written more than forty books of verse, ranging from his big collectionsof more than one hundred verses each-such as The New Kid on the Block and It's Raining Pigs and Noodles-to his delightful picture book collections such as: Good Sports: Rhymes About Running, Jumping, Throwing, and More and Behold the Bold Umbrellaphant, a Lee Bennet Hopkins Honor Book. In addition to The Random House Books of Poetry for Children, he has also compiled The 20th- Century Children's Poetry Treasury, The Beauty of the Beast, Read-Aloud Rhymes for the Very Young, and eight other award-winning anthologies. He was born in the Bronx, has traveled to all fifty states to promote poetry, and now lives in Seattle with his wife, Carolyn.

ARNOLD LOBEL began his career in children's books in 1961 and illustrated over seventy books, some of which he also wrote. He received the Caldecott Medal for Fables in 1981 and a Caldecott Honor in 1971 for Frog and Toad Are Friends. It's sequel, Frog and Toad Together, was an 1973 Newberry Honor Book.
