We Take School POs
All of our bargain books are brand new, perfectly readable and represent a tremendous value! The bargain books are, however, publisher overstocks and remainders that TRW purchases at deep discounts. As a result, they may have a small mark through the UPC bar code or a small mark on the side of the book. This is simply to mark the books so they cannot be sent back to a publisher. Because of this, bargain books are non returnable to TRW unless they are damaged. Please consider this before ordering.

When you're in the world of Jack Prelutsky, anything can happen. Ogres run wild, dragons sing, and baby uggs hatch. . . . Frogs wear red suspenders in a rainstorm of pigs and noodles. . . . Scranimals gallivant under a pizza the size of the sun. . . .

Even the new kid on the block can see that the nation's first Children's Poet Laureate is something big. So, what are you waiting for? Let your parents think you're sleeping, and ride a purple pelican to a land where imagination is king, ridiculous rhymes rule, and laughing out loud is guaranteed These are Jack Prelutsky's greatest hits

Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2009 Spring)
This volume contains a wide selection of Prelutsky's euphonious, often challenging, usually humorous verse. The expansive digital caricature illustrations attract the eye while giving the poems plenty of space. Prelutsky-centric activities supplement some of the pieces; an accompanying CD sets many of them to music. This collection is everything a fan could ask for. Ind.

Reviewed by School Library Journal Reviews (SLJ Reviews 2009 March)

PreS-Gr 3—This fat, sunny volume brings together 112 of Prelutsky's poems. Most are old favorites from the past four decades, but 15 of them have never been published before. Kicking off with a letter from the poet, the book contains five sections, each concluding with a page of activities such as word games and drawing prompts. Digital illustrations with lavish details and colors stand out nicely from the ample white space, yet their overall loudness tends to wash out some of the verses' clever snappiness. A CD features the author reading 30 of the poems to a slightly overpowering musical accompaniment. Fans as well as children just discovering Prelutsky should enjoy hearing him read his work aloud.—Julie Roach, Cambridge Public Library, MA
