Description


I'm making a pizza the size of the sun,
a pizza that's sure to weigh more than a ton,
a pizza too massive to pick up and toss,
a pizza resplendent with oceans of sauce.

I'm topping my pizza with mountains of cheese,
with acres of peppers, pimentos, and peas,
with mushrooms, tomatoes, and sausage galore,
with every last olive they had at the store.

Here is a wondrously tasty--and always funny--collection of more than 100 poems for readers of every age. Meet Miss Misinformation and Gladiola Gloppe (andher Soup Shoppe), and delight in a backward poem, a poem that never ends, and scores of other poems to read and love. You won't stop smiling

Praise For…


“Prelutsky loosens his agile imagination in words, while around the pages cavort Stevenson’s interpretive line drawings, shimmy-shimmying to the beat. Terrific.”
-Kirkus Reviews (pointered review)

“This book should be required reading for those out there who claim they don’t like poetry.”
-School Library Journal (starred review)

“Poetry’s bad boys are back again, teaming up to take another swipe at stuffiness.”
-Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“If a laugh is what’s needed, just hand over the keys and let these two drive.”
-Publishers Weekly (starred review)
