When you're in the world of Jack Prelutsky, anything can happen. Ogres run wild, dragons sing, and baby uggs hatch. . . . Frogs wear red suspenders in a rainstorm of pigs and noodles. . . . Scranimals gallivant under a pizza the size of the sun. . . .

Even the new kid on the block can see that the nation's first Children's Poet Laureate is something big. So, what are you waiting for? Let your parents think you're sleeping, and ride a purple pelican to a land where imagination is king, ridiculous rhymes rule, and laughing out loud is guaranteed! These are Jack Prelutsky's greatest hits!

This magnificent treasury of more than one hundred of Jack Prelutsky's most celebrated verses, along with fifteen all-new poems, is a tribute to his gifts to children's literature over the past forty years. Lushly illustrated by rising star Brandon Dorman and featuring a CD with classic performances by the poet himself, it is the perfect volume for any poetry lover's bookshelf.
