In Behold the Bold Umbrellaphant, the master of silliness introduces oddly wonderful and uniquely skilled creatures who are combinations of animals and objects. You will meet the Ballpoint Penguins, the Clocktopus, the tearful Zipperpotamuses, a Spatuloon, and a Tubaloon!

Publishers Weekly

Prelutsky fans are in for a treat with this collection that combines his latest book of poetry with two other favorite anthologies (Scranimals; What a Day It Was at School!) and features several original songs. Each poem spotlights an animal that shares characteristics of some inanimate object (i.e., the title character is an elephant with an umbrella for a trunk). Among the selections that Prelutsky has set to music are "The Ballpoint Penguins": "The ballpoint penguins black and white/ Do little else but write and write./ Although they've nothing much to say,/ They write and write it anyway." Prelutsky's confident reading conveys the witty, matter-of-fact silliness that is the hallmark of his work. His troubadour-like folk-style songs and musicianship on acoustic guitar are an entertaining bonus. Ages 4-up. (Oct. 2006)
