Overview

It's Raining Pigs & Noodles by Jack Prelutsky, James Stevenson

It's raining pigs and noodles,
it's pouring frogs and hats,

are dropping from the sky,
here comes a bunch of carrots,
some hippopotami.

The master of mischievous rhyme, Jack Prelutsky, and his partner in crime, James Stevenson, have whipped up a storm of more than one hundred hilarious poems and zany drawings. Grab your umbrella—and make sure it's a big one!

It's Raining Pigs and Noodles

It's raining pigs and noodles,
it's pouring frogs and hats,
chrysanthemums and poodles,
bananas, brooms, and cats.
Assorted prunes and parrots
are dropping from the sky,
here comes a bunch of carrots,
some hippopotami.

It's raining pens and pickles,
and eggs and silverware.
A flood of figs and nickels
is falling through the air.
I see a swan, a sweater,
a clock, a model train--
like this so much better
than when it's raining rain.

My name is Alexandra and I am 9 years old. I read all of the poems in this book. My favorite poem was "I'm a Noted Liar". It is confusing and funny at the same time. My least favorite poem was "Burp". Who, besides a boy, likes to talk about burps? Jack Prelutsky is a funny writer!

I've been reading this to my grandchildren. We have so much fun with the purely nonsensical silliness. Lots and lots of giggles.

Jack Prelutsky has done it again! His wonderful use of wit and humor appeal to children of all ages. My class loves it when I read Prelutsky's poems and stories aloud to them. If you are a teacher, and want to get your kids excited about reading, I would definitely add any or all of Prelutsky's books to your classroom library! Happy Reading!
