It's Raining Pigs & Noodles
The title, which is also the first line, sets the playful tone. Delightfully anti-authoritarian and anti-establishment, Jack Prelutsky is the unexcelled master of word-playing nonsense. His laugh-aloud poems are rude, disrespectful, annoying, and perceptive. In a word, marvelous. Childish readers, however, will read, laugh, and pay him the ultimate compliment: They will memorize and repeat his lines with (pickle) relish. 160 pages.
