Publisher Comments:

It's raining pigs and noodles,
it's pouring frogs and hats,
chrysanthemums and poodles,
bananas, brooms, and cats.
Assorted prunes and parrots
are dropping from the sky,
here comes a bunch of carrots,
some hippopotami.

The master of mischievous rhyme, Jack Prelutsky, and his partner in crime, James Stevenson, have whipped up a storm of more than one hundred hilarious poems and zany drawings. Grab your umbrella—and make sure it's a big one!

About the Author

Jennifer Starkman, July 7, 2007 (view all comments by Jennifer Starkman)
There?s no question that Jack Prelutsky has a nose for what kids like. Although known as well for collecting and editing some great anthologies of other authors? poems for children, Prelutsky is clearly most in his element when he?s churning out the verse himself. Much like the late, beloved Shel Silverstein, Prelutsky?s poems are both clever and irreverent. He doesn?t patronize children, nor simplify his language?he?s not afraid to use big words when they?re called for, recognizing that this is how children learn new things; and it is more important for the poem to flow right than for it to be too-easily digested. With over 100 poems with names such as ?Her Highness Zookeepoo? and ?Never Poke Your Uncle With a Fork,? illustrated with James Stevenson?s zany line drawings, this is a book filled with verses sure to capture any child?s imagination. A further bonus is that while many of these poems are probably best suited to slightly older children, there are several that even an interested two- or three-year-old can enjoy, whether for the subject matter (my young niece was particularly taken with the idea of ?Virtual Chicken?) or just the lovely way the words sound when strung together.
