A Pizza the Size of the Sun: Poems

Add this book to My Bookshelf

Author:

Jack Prelutsky

Illustrator:

James Stevenson

Publisher:

Greenwillow Books

Categories:

Ages:

Summary: Jack Prelutsky is widely acknowledged as the poet laureate of the younger generation. (And many people would happily see him crowned with no age qualification.) The New Kid on the Block and Something Big Has Been Here are household words wherever there are kids. Here is another wondrously rich, varied, clever - and always funny - collection. Meet Miss Misinformation, Swami Gourami, and Gladiola Gloppe (and her Soup Shoppe), and delight in a backwards poem, a poem that ever ends, and scores of others that will be changed, read, and loved by readers of every age. The Prelutsky-Stevenson duo is irresistible. Whether you begin at the beginning or just open the book at random, you won't stop smiling.

I liked this book because it has really funny poems. The poems can go in any direction. Some go forward, some go backwards, and some need a mirror to read them.

The poems found in A Pizza the size of the Sun are funny and interesting! They have strange creatures, some are creepy and some are funny.
