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)
