Synopsis
There's the Flotz who gobbles dots (watch out if you have freckles), the Phillyloo Bird and the Wendigo, the Hum Bug Machine and the Ogglewop...just try to imagine them! This glorious gathering of 50 poems about imaginary monsters, machines, and other weird things is guaranteed to poke, prod, tease, and tickle a child's own powers of imagination. Here are tales that are a little bit spooky, inspire creative thinking, and are downright funny from such poets as Dr. Seuss, Lewis Carroll, Ogden Nash, John Ciardi, Spike Milligan, and of course Jack Prelutsky, along with the lively paintings of Kevin Hawkes. This collection is first rate!  
Amazon.com Review
Is there a secret dragon in your bathtub? Or a "crocodial" in your telephone? Do you know a wendigo personally? You'll meet all these creatures and many more in this delightful anthology of imaginative poems compiled by the popular, prolific children's poet Jack Prelutsky, who also selected the poems in The Beauty of the Beast and Read-Aloud Rhymes for the Very Young. Here Prelutsky has chosen 50 "poems of never-was" that celebrate mythical monsters, marvelous machines, and mysterious magic, cleverly crafted by luminaries such as Dr. Seuss, Lewis Carroll, Ogden Nash, Jane Yolen, and Prelutsky himself. Kevin Hawkes's bright and captivating illustrations make all these bizarre critters and creations burst into life. (Now you can see what Lewis Carroll's famous Jabberwock looks like!) Catch a ride on Mr. Mad's Machine to the land of never-was, but watch out for the Leathery Gumberoo and the Bugle-Billed Bazoo! (Ages 5 to 9) --Marcie Bovetz
