I’ve read all the short holiday Jack Prelutsky poetry books...It’s Halloween!...It’s Valentine’s Day...It’s Christmas! But I’ve never taken on one of the longer books. And, I say to myself now, what was I waiting for? I can unabashedly recommend this book now. It’s right up there with Shel Silverstein’s Where the Sidewalk Ends for silliness and delight. Trust me. Need poetry for kids? This is a sure thing.
