About the Author:

Jack Prelutsky was named the nation's first Children's Poet Laureate by the Poetry Foundation. He has filled more than fifty books of verse with his inventive wordplay, including the recent New York Times bestseller My Dog May Be a Genius. Jack Prelutsky lives with his wife in Washington State.

From Booklist:

The huge but rather childlike character featured in Prelutsky and Zelinsky’s Awful Ogre’s Awful Day (2001) returns in a new volume of light verse accomplanied by full-page and double-page illustrations. Taking place during the one-eyed ogre’s summer vacation, the first-person poems run the gamut from somewhat gross (“Awful Ogre Has Insomnia”) to droll (“Awful Ogre Attends a Concert”) to tenderhearted (“Awful Ogre Pays a Visit”) to sublime (“Awful Ogre Goes Dragon-Watching”). Prelutsky shows his sure sense of rhythm and rhyme as well as his child-pleasing sense of humor in this series of 17 clearly written poems. Most appear on double-page spreads, accompanied by large ink-and-watercolor illustrations that reflect the tone of the verse. Highlighting the barely controlled chaos of this amiable ogre’s world, the pictures create a visually imaginative setting where anything can happen and, in the fun-to-discover details, something often does. A crowd-pleasing encore. Grades K-3. --Carolyn Phelan
