Om författaren

Jack Prelutsky, born on September 8, 1940 in Brooklyn, New York, is primarily known as a poet for children but he is also a gifted musician, actor, photographer, sculptor and potter. Prelutsky studied at Hunter College for two years. He proposed to his future wife, Carolynn, on the day they met; visa mer she accepted the next day. While growing up in Brooklyn, Prelutsky studied voice at The High School of Music and Art in New York and first planned to be an opera singer. However, he decided he did not have the drive to sing opera, and he became a folk singer. Later he tried his hand at drawing. For fun, he wrote some short poems and made some drawings, which became his first publication. He has since published numerous books of illustrated poetry and also provided illustrations for books by other writers, including many in translation. Prelutsky never condescends to his young readers. He deals in verse with many imaginative creatures, but he also writes about people and problems such bullies, school, and fear of the dark. He is aware of the sound of his words and likes to perform his poetry to the accompaniment of the guitar. He visits schools and libraries to perform his work. Jack Prelutsky is the recipient of numerous awards. In 1977 The Children's Book Council honored him for Nightmares: Poems to Trouble Your Sleep. His other award-winners are The Mean Old Mean Hyena, The Headless Horseman Rides Tonight, and The New Kid on the Block. In 2006, the Poetry Foundation named Prelutsky the inaugural winner of the Children's Poet Laureate award. His book Behold the Bold Umbrellaphant and Other Poems (illustrated by Carin Berger) won the 2007 Scandiuzzi Children's Book Award of the Washington State Book Awards in the Picture Book category.

I chose this book because it reminded a lot about the book Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark by Alvin Schwartz. I loved a good scary story and this poetry book kind of reminded me of it. Nothing too too scary but I think just enough to make a few children a bit nervous.

A poetry book that has it all! There are poems for all different interest levels from people, jellyfish, dinosaurs and bizarre creatures. Elementary students will find these poems easy to read, silly and playful. There are around 100 poems in this book and some have illustrations too. Read this book to enjoy fun word play and laugh.

This is a delightful, silly, charming book of poetry about animals mixed up. my favorite may be the pocupineapple. This inspired my 5 year old's imagination in a huge way, we read it through many times before it had to go back to the library.
