Review:
The prolific and talented Jack Prelutsky offers yet another collection of newly-minted nonsense verse. There's a fresh wrinkle in this volume: exotic place names of various cities and towns across the nation - Minneapolis, Winnemucca and El Paso, to name a few - figure in the rhymes. The title verse is one of the exceptions, as is this reviewer's favorite, There Was a Tiny Baker ("who had a tiny shop/ he baked a tiny cookie/ with a frosting on the top." etc.). Petra Mather's bright and cheery watercolor illustrations are a decided asset to an uneven but enjoyable work.
