Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Jack Prelutsky's exploration of outer space is not for the faint of heart. No friendly little E.T.-type aliens await your arrival. There are many imaginative ways to perish in these darklycomedic cautionary verses about unexplored worlds so far beyond our solar system. The final poem is an environmental tour de force that packs a wallop. Here are poems the older reader will find great fun to memorize andrattle off to anyone who will listen And there is a special bonus: anagrams for the kid who loves word puzzles.

From the Hardcover edition.
