Jack Prelutsky is the undisputed master of hilarious verse for the youngest child. And Petra Mathers, has no equal when it comes to bringing anything with fur or feathers uproariously to life. Put the two of them together -and you have a modern classic.
Here are poems about people and animals, set in such far-flung places as Minot, Minneapolis, Tuscaloosa, Tucumcari, and the Grand Canyon. Impossible to read only once (and memorized by the third reading), these exuberant poems and irresistible pictures will be loved by children from Miami to Seattle.

We received this book from my mother-in-law for the holidays. I have read it to my five year old every night since. She loves it. And I like the references to locations throughout the U.S. A great book for both the poetry and making children aware of different locations. Thanks
I heard these poems read on NPR this morning and decided to immediately buy it for my niece and nephew. I can't wait to read the poems to them.
