More About Jack Prelutsky, Marjorie Priceman, Stephanie Feeney, Morris Jackson, Sherif Sonbol, Chryse Hutchins, Stephanie Harvey & B. Teissier

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Jack Prelutsky was born in Brooklyn, New York. He attended New York City Public Schools and studied voice at the High School of Music and Art. He enrolled in Hunter College in Manhattan but left soon after "to become a beatnik." Jack has been a cab driver, a busboy, a photographer, a furniture mover, a potter, and a folk singer. He enjoys bicycling, playing racquetball, woodworking and cooking. He lives in Washington State with his wife Carolynn and a vast collection of poetry books and frogs in every shape, size, and form -- except living! There was a time when Jack couldn't stand poetry. In grade school he had a teacher who left him with the impression that poetry was the literary equivalent of liver. He rediscovered poetry in his twenties, and he decided that he would write about things that kids really cared about, and that he would strive to make poetry delightful. He has been writing poetry for more than twenty years and has published more than three dozen books for children.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Lovely book but...  Jun 5, 2005
I guess I'd better start by saying I really did like this book and my reservations are largely based on relevance to my kids' in their culture. The poems are very funny, but there are a lot of overtones that are very US American in the selection and that meant that my children (Kiwi kids) didn't enjoy this book as much as some other collections we have. Having said that I don't for a moment regret buying it or think that it contains inappropriate material. It is a collection we will continue to enjoy over the years to come, but I do prefer some of Jack Prelutsky's other poetry selections such as the "20th Century Children's Poetry Treasury" or "The Random House Book of Poetry for Children" which also contain some hilarious poems in their mix.
 
The best of the best  Apr 30, 2002
The only thing that may rival a book of poems by the master of children's poetry, Jack Prelutsky, is a collection of humorous poems selected by Jack Prelutsky. Not to give too much away, how can anyone resist a 2-page poem about collecting pancakes, or a limerick to do with dreaming about eating a shoe that turns out to be perfectly true? Not I. Without a doubt,this is a great collection of poems.
 
Completely inappropriate for children  Dec 27, 2000
While many of the poems are fine, some are morbid. For example, one talks about a boy swimming through the great lakes and drowning, and another talks about grandpa going down the drain and there now being one grandpa fewer. One talks about a dead father who has been haunting his son for 17 years. This book is completely inappropriate for cihldren.
 
I love this book  Aug 24, 2000
This is one of my all-time favorite children's books, and we have hundreds. I have bought at least 10 copies to give as children's gifts. I used this book in a 3rd grade library class to introduce the children to poetry. The poems are all funny and in good taste. A great read-aloud book. Both boys and girls begged to hear more poems and to take out poetry books by Jack Prelutsky.
 
good, but not written by JP  Jan 13, 2000
This is a very cute book with lively illustrations, but I was surprised when I received it that it was not written by Jack Prelutsky. The poems were selected by him, and they are enjoyable, but to me don't compare with his wonderful, zany poems that my children always want to hear. So, buyer beware- make sure these books are not "selected" by him or edited by Mr. Prelutsky if you want the real thing.
