Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It is hard to believe that Cincinnati Patty, Justin Austin, Pennington Poe, and the little pink pig in Arkansas have not been chanted and sung about by children for generations. But it is not hard to believe that they Will be chanted and sung about for generations to come! Jack Prelutsky and Garth Williams have created a nursery world, peopled with unforgettable characters. Come and meet your new friends. They will be old friends soon!

Synopsis:

Climb aboard for a spellbinding sojourn with Cincinnati Patty, Buntington Bunny, the balloons of Kalamazoo, and many new friends. From Seattle to New York, Saskatoon to Honolulu, an unforgettable cast of zany creatures will tickle readers' tongues and ignite their imaginations. Full color.

About the Author

Jack Prelutsky was the nation's first Children's Poet Laureate. He has filled more than fifty books of verse with his inventive wordplay, including the national bestsellers Scranimals and The New Kid on the Block. He lives in Washington State.

I have given this as a baby shower gift for 20 years - ever since a very kind friend gave it to our first baby girl. Poems that can be read or sung to distressed babies over and over without inspiring parents to shoot themselves. Garth Williams illustrations that are as sweet as the work in "Stuart Little" and "Charlotte's Web".
