More About Jack Prelutsky, Marjorie Priceman, Qi-Man Shao, Sandro Zappatore, Keith E. Herold, Jose Cabot & Tim Ohr

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! For 30 years, Jack Prelutsky's inventive poems have inspired legions of children to fall in love with poetry. His outrageously silly poems have tickled even the most stubborn funny bones, while his darker verses have spooked countless late-night readers. His award-winning books include Tyrannosaurus Was a Beast, The Dragons Are Singing Tonight, The Random House Book of Poetry for Children, and The Beauty of the Beast.
While attending a Bronx, New York, grade school, Prelutsky took piano and voice lessons and was a regular in school shows. Surprisingly, Prelutsky developed a healthy dislike for poetry due to a teacher who -left me with the impression that poetry was the literary equivalent of liver. I was told it was good for me, but I wasn't convinced.-
In his early twenties, Prelutsky spent six months drawing imaginary animals in ink and watercolor. One evening, he wrote two dozen short poetry verses to accompany each drawing. A friend encouraged him to show them to an editor, who loved his poems (although not his artwork!) and urged him to keep writing. Prelutsky listened and he is still busy writing.
Jack Prelutsky lives on Mercer Island in Washington with his wife, Carolynn.

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.
