Synopsis
The wise guy of children's verse happens to have another persona. In real life he's a grown-up and faces all of the grown-up dilemmas we all do. Only he's sharper, funnier and rhymier than the rest of us. Here's Prelutsky on being a nineties type of guy (Should I be macho? Should I be mellow? Spit on the sidewalk? Or take up the cello?) on Hummels, hemorrhoids, meter maids, on politicians (Republicrats as he calls them), true love, Mondays, sex, cryogenics, roommates, and airline delays ("our captain spoke laconically. There'll be a slight delay.' I knew from long experience, I'd not get home today.") Wherever Prelutsky turns his wicked eyes, he turns up humor, and here are over seventy poems to read aloud to your best friends. In this delightful collection Prelutsky makes his adult debut. It's been a long time coming, but then Prelutsky had a lot more fun being a kid than most of us.
