Jack Prelutsky is widely acknowledged as the poet laureate of the younger generation. (And many people would happily see him crowned with no age qualification.) The New Kid on the Block and Something Big Has Been Here are household words wherever there are kids.

Here is another wondrously rich, varied, clever – and always funny – collection. Meet Miss Misinformation, Swami Gourami, and Gladiola Gloppe (and her Soup Shoppe), and delight in a backwards poem, a poem that ever ends, and scores of others that will be changed, read, and loved by readers of every age. The Prelutsky-Stevenson duo is irresistible. Whether you begin at the beginning or just open the book at random, you won’t stop smiling.

Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Poetry’s bad boys are back again, teaming up to take another swipe at stuffiness. Prelutsky’s predilection for playfulness percolates throughout this collection of slyly subversive rhymes, and he couldn’t ask for a better partner in crime than Stevenson, whose droll, minimalist sketches so enlivened the duo’s previous escapades (The New Kid on the Block; Something BIG Has Been Here). Once again Prelutsky demonstrates a robust appreciation of the absurd?and an uncanny knack for turning every possible subject on its head. Here his verse ranges from the short and sweet (“My mother makes me chicken,/ her chicken makes me cough./ I wish that when she made it,/ she took the feathers off”) to poems of Jabberwockian silliness (the entry that begins ” ‘I’m ceiling fad!’ a money boned./ ‘Alas!’ a carrot pride” is just one example). The pages are peppered with kinetic black-and-white drawings; like Thurber, Stevenson wrings a wealth of humor and emotion out of a few dashes of ink. If a laugh is what’s needed, just hand over the keys and let these two drive. Ages 5-up.
