Frivolity and fun rule this recording from its opening lines, featuring Dad's forays into home repair, to the finale, featuring the airborne antics of the Fearless Flying Hot Dogs "ketching up with each other" and spreading "wings with mustard." Along the way, listeners will need to seek protection from fearsome tigers, consider a new pet—perhaps a porcupine or a giraffe—and peruse the remarkable menu at the school cafeteria. The recitation of Jack Prelutsky, the nations’ first Children’s Poet Laureate, is crisp and paced for appreciation. Whether humorous or more serious, his sentiment for the characters of his poems is heartfelt. When Prelutsky sings, with engaging accompaniments, one can only appreciate more fully the connection between poetry and song. A.R.
