9780066238630: My Dog May Be a Genius

Have you ever encountered an underwater marching band, a pig in a bathing suit, a pet orangutan, or a witch in a hardware store? Have you ever sat with a skunk in a courtroom, shopped for a dinosaur, or conversed with a Bupple, a Wosstrus, a Violinnet, or a Celloon? You will have, once you've read this exuberant collaboration from Jack Prelutsky and his "partner in crime" James Stevenson.

The "reigning czars of silliness" have once again teamed up to bring readers an irresistible collection of poems that will have tongues twisting, imaginations soaring, and sides aching with laughter. The result is genius, indeed.

From AudioFile:

Jack Prelutsky, the nation's first children's poet laureate, returns with another collection of poems set to music. Listeners are introduced to a world that includes the magical--you'll meet homework-burning dragons and griffins--and the everyday--I accidentally scared a skunk/a hornet stung my head/I'm sleeping in the bottom bunk/my bunkmate wets the bed. On display is a deeply creative imagination. Prelutsky's love of rhyme, funny story, and wordplay are once again vividly apparent. The fun, original music of these cheerful pieces provides a bright backdrop for Prelutsky's humorous rhymes, which he presents in a pleasant, upbeat voice. The poet's ability to reach across the parent/child humor divide, cleverly entertaining both, will be much appreciated. J.C.G. AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine-- Copyright AudioFile, Portland, Maine
