For the first time, the poetry of Dennis Lee, the Pied Piper of children's verse, has been collected in one rousing volume by the inimitable Jack Prelutsky. From food fantasies to schoolyard chants and monster mayhem, Lee really knows how to tickle kids with words. There are quiet poems, rude and rambunctious poems, and some pure nonsense verses that trip off the tongue, begging to be said over and over again. Others capture the attraction of a muddy puddle or the somnolent rhythm of windshield wipers on a rainy day. There's something for everyone in this wonderful collection of read-aloud or read-alone rhymes and Debbie Tilley's (Riddle-icious) buoyant imaginative watercolors are an open invitation to jump in and join the fun.
Canadian poet Dennis Lee's poetry is well loved by children around the world. This collection of 41 poems was selected by anthologist Jack Prelutsky from Lee's four previous books of poetry, including The Ice Cream Store. Children in the early grades will chuckle at poems about dinosaurs and alligators, monsters and mud puddles, bears and bees, and belly buttons. Debbie Tilley's exuberant watercolor illustrations perfectly complement Lee's verse; both have the same bouncy good humor that kids love. Invite a dinosaur to dinner at your house (and don't forget some alligator pie for dessert). (Ages 4 to 7)
