And Other Poems
Jack Prelutsky

Prelutsky’s latest animal creations are hybrid creatures with personality traits produced by altering letters in their names: “Jollyfish are radiant, Ebullient blobs of mirth” and “Plandas sit around all day, Planning what to do.” The poems bounce with rhythmic energy and Berger’s cut-paper illustrations enhance the imaginative verses. A book to treasure from the creators of Behold the Bold Umbrellaphant (2006) Ages 5-9
