Children's Poet Laureate Jack Prelutsky loves humor, wordplay, and catchy rhythms. Here he performs two of his recent poetry collections for younger children, each boasting 28 short versions of Prelutsky's world. Impossible things happen to wacky animals like poodles who "eat oodles of noodles" and to people like Dolly Jane, who hunts lobsters on the rocky coast of Maine. The instrumentation might be mandolin, keyboard, or guitar. The style might be bluegrass or waltz. The mood is lonely when Prelutsky describes a drifting sea gull and bouncy as messy Granny Gooding falls into a pudding. Each poem is short, memorable, and singable.
