The next required listening for young poetry fans! Poet laureate of the preposterous, Jack Preslutsky has a new partner in rhyme -- Petra Mathers -- and the result is a stupendous spree of twenty--eight exuberant poems. In this collection there are tongue--twisting but real places to visit, such as Tuscaloosa and Winnemucca. There are remarkable sights, such as an elephant perched in a sycamore tree. And there are unforgettable characters, including Granny Gooding, Sarah Small, and Barnaby Boone, all of whose poems are guaranteed to make you smile. Young, sweet, and simply silly, you can bet your boots that this book will have everyone seeing red -- suspenders, that is!
