Awful Ogre's Awful Dayby Jack Prelutsky and Paul O. Zelinsky
Synopses & Reviews
It's pouring. The wind is blowing down trees. Awful Ogre's rattlesnake wakes him. He tickles his piranha, scatters his rats, and disengages his leeches. Another wonderful day is about to begin.
Awful Ogre, huge, hungry, horrible--and totally lovable, will steal the heart of every reader. Larger than life--larger, in fact, than all other ogres, Awful Ogre packs into one day enough excitement, imagination, emotion, and sheer ebullience to last most of us a lifetime
Jack Prelutsky and Paul O. Zelinsky have created a tour de force of epic proportions and infinite appeal.
In 18 funny, original and almost heartwarming poems, the author presents a most awful day in the life of Awful Ogre--but he thinks he's having a marvelous time. Illustrations.
About the Author
If you are twelve or under, you have probably read — and memorized — at least one poem by Jack Prelutsky. He has written more than thirty books of verse, edited several enormously popular anthologies (and been extensively anthologized himself), translated a number of books, and is always at work on the poems for at least three future books. He has lived in Boston, Albuquerque, and Manhattan, but he says he is now happily settled in the Seattle area. Among his most popular books are The New Kid on the Block, Something Big Has Been Here, The Dragons are Singing Tonight, and Monday's Troll.
