Following A Pizza the Size of the Sun, the reigning czars of silliness are back on the warpath, wreaking poetic havoc with yet another deliciously sly volume. The titles alone are a treat: "Never Poke Your Uncle With a Fork"; "I'm Ironing My Rhinoceros"; "Waffles Give Me Sniffles." Prelutsky trips the light verse fantastic across territory that's familiar yet fresh. He gleefully descends to the depths of gross-out humor ("Worm puree, oh hooray!/ You're the dish that makes my day"), engages in nimble wordplay ("There's no present like the time," he notes in "I Gave My Friend a Cuckoo Clock") and once again proves himself king of the final one-two punch (a knight confesses to ineffectuality in an ode closing with this couplet: "My name is famed through all the land/ I'm called Sir Lunchalot"). The sassy selection of nonsense rhymes and puckish poems will further endear Prelutsky to his many fans. Meanwhile, partner-in-crime Stevenson peppers the pages with his inimitably impish sketches, from pigs in kilts on stilts to fleas on a circus trapeze. Hats off to these two glorious goofballs! Ages 5-up. (Sept.) Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.

K-Gr 5-Jack Prelutsky has set to music and performs 28 of his poems from the book of the same title (Greenwillow, 2000). Humorous throughout, there's a rich variety of poetry and music. Some of the pieces are nonsensical, such as the title poem , which lists many ridiculous items it could rain. There are funny story poems such as "I Chased a Dragon Through the Woods," and thoughtful ones, such as "Plooters." (c) Copyright 2012.

"Sure to tickle readers young and old."--The Horn Book "The verse is fresh and catchy with sparkling wordplay and unexpected rhymes, and line drawings the humor with verve."--School Library Journal "Unabated chaos that celebrates imagination."--ALA Booklist "The reigning czars of silliness are back on the warpath, wreaking poetic havoc with yet another deliciously sly volume. Hats off to these two glorious goofballs!"--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
