A collection from the celebrated inaugural Young People's Poet Laureate and bestselling poet Jack Prelutsky, featuring more than one hundred original poems!
From a lizard playing a mandolin (although not very well) to the surprised guest of honor (at a birthday party he threw for himself), there's something for everyone in Jack Prelutsky's Hard-Boiled Bugs for Breakfast. Illustrator Ruth Chan's lively and hilarious black-and-white art jumps off the page and illuminates a wide array of poetic forms, from haiku to concrete poems and everything in between.
This collection is full of the wit, humor, and imagination that has made Jack Prelutsky a household name and one of the most beloved poets for children. His poetry books for kids include such favorites as A Pizza the Size of the Sun and The New Kid on the Block.
Includes black-and-white line art on every page, plus an index.
