From the Publisher:
From the gifted creators of the outrageously popular "The New Kid on the Block" and "Something Big Has Been Here" comes yet another wondrously rich, varied, clever--and always funny--collection of poems destined to become favorites. A host of Prelutsky-Stevenson oddballs and characters people the pages of this zany book, which also includes a backwards poem and a poem that never ends. Full color.
Jack Prelutsky is widely acknowledged as the poet laureate of the younger generation. (And many people would happily see him crowned with no age qualification.) The New Kid on the Block and Something Big Has Been Here are household words wherever there are kids.
Here is another wondrously rich, varied, clever - and always funny - collection. Meet Miss Misinformation, Swami Gourami, and Gladiola Gloppe (and her Soup Shoppe), and delight in a backwards poem, a poem that ever ends, and scores of others that will be changed, read, and loved by readers of every age. The Prelutsky-Stevenson duo is irresistible. Whether you begin at the beginning or just open the book at random, you won't stop smiling.
A collection of humorous poetry including a backwards poem and one that never ends. Illustrated with b&w drawings.
"Prelutsky loosens his agile imagination in words, while around the pages cavort Stevenson's interpretive line drawings, shimmy-shimmying to the beat. Terrific." 07/15/1996 Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"There are lots of chant-aloud possibilities in here as well as a plethora of reading delights; like [Prelutsky and Stevenson's] other compilations, this will be a great source whenever you really wan to put on the dog-gerel." - Deborah Stevenson September 1996
