A day at school is:
a. marvelous
b. dreadful
c. silly
d. all of the above—and much, much more!

From suspicious hot lunches (yuck!), to pop quizzes (oh, no!), to recess and best friends (hooray!), everything you love—and love to hate—about school is front and center in this collection of eighteen poems by thirteen celebrated poets. One thing's for certain: there's no place like school!

Jack Prelutsky is the best-selling author of more than fifty books of poetry, includingThe New Kid on the Block, illustrated by James Stevenson, andStardines Swim High Across the Sky, illustrated by Carin Berger. Jack Prelutsky lives in Washington State.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for Jack Prelutsky: "Even the most reluctant readers love Prelutsky. In this age of violent videos and ever-declining standards on TV, millions of children happily sit down with his books and read his poetry over and over and over again. With any luck, reading Prelutsky will encourage them to read other authors and even, someday . . . who would have thought it . . . other poets." (Karen Glenn, The Poetry Foundation)
