9780060543181: Behold the Bold Umbrellaphant: And Other Poems

So put on your pith helmet and prepare to explore a wilderness of puns and rhymes where birds, beasts, vegetables, and flowers have been mysteriously scrambled together to create creatures you've never seen before -- and are unlikely to meet again! Your guides -- Jack Prelutsky, poet laureate of the elementary school set, and two-time Caldecott Honor artist Peter Sis -- invite you to join them on an adventure you will never forget!

Jack Prelutsky is the best-selling author of more than fifty books of poetry, including The New Kid on the Block, illustrated by James Stevenson, and Stardines Swim High Across the Sky, illustrated by Carin Berger. Jack Prelutsky lives in Washington State.

From AudioFile:

The first Children's Poet Laureate for the United States reads and sings from three of his poetry collections. Selections combine animals, objects, and living things into unique beings. Beware a "radishark" if you are swimming or let a "ballpoint penguin" help you take notes. "What a Day It Was at School" provides a look at school from the students' point of view in adept Prelutsky fashion. It's a treat to hear the poet recite his own work. While it's well known that many of Prelutsky's poems can be set to the music of familiar tunes, the tunes for these poems are original and underscore the pleasure Prelutsky takes in performing his own work. The images--from "pop-up toadsters" to "solitary spatuloons"--linger in the listener's ear. A.R.
