This deceptively slender volume contains a treasure-trove of poems. Each page is crammed with verse and illustrations by Caldecott Medalist Arnold Lobel. Everyone's favorite poems are complemented by fresh new voices and organized into such unusual themes as food, the city, spooky poems, and word play.

Children's Literature

Prelutsky is one of the most trusted names in children's poetry. During the school year he probably gets a hundred letters a week from kids. Kids know that Prelutsky is their friend because he writes about the things they care about-outer space, monsters, dragons, sports, food fights, sibling rivalry, and weird friends. He never condescends. Prelutsky tell things in unique, interesting ways. He's compiled anthologies like this one where he draws on many current writers who he believes are some of the best children's poets who ever lived.
