A Pizza the Size of the Sun
A Pizza the Size of the Sun is a poetry book by Jack Prelutsky. I think that the book is very good because the pictures really catch your eye by not having that much illustration but it is really nice. I also like this book because his poems are real and have good lessons in them. He is different than other writers like Shel Silverstein because his poems and pictures tell you what the story is with out reading the poem and that's what I like.
My favorite poem is "Please Remove Seal" because it is funny and it is true because the sticker that says please remove seal is really ambiguous because you don't know what to do remove the sticker or there is a real sea in the box, it really makes you think. Also when you first read the poem "Please Remove the Seal" you think it dumb but when you re-read it really makes sense. That poem is a thinker.
Another poem that I like and I can make a connection to is the poem "My Brother's Really Stingy" because when my brother has silly bands and I ask him for one and he says you can have one, and it is broken it reminds of this poem "My Brother's Really Stingy" when the big brother asks for a lowly- pop then the little brother licks it and says now you can have it. That reminds me of my brother and me.
Another poem that I can really relate to is "My Mother Makes Me Chicken" because almost every night for dinner we have chicken, grilled chicken, barbecue chicken, breaded chicken and all other chicken recipes. I really get sick of eating chicken, it is good one day but it gets over the top. Once when my mom was in Australia and she found chicken chips. I really don't like chicken.
Jack Prelutsky is a great poem writer; I recommend this book to any one who wants a good laugh and a good poem book. You should get this book because his pictures are great and his poems are fantastic also they have a nice rhyming scheme and also he is one of the best poets out there. His poems are awesome and I can really relate to them, it is like the poem book of my life, the poems are also really ambiguous but I can understand them once you read them again. I think he is the best poet ever.
