Om forfatteren

Jack Prelutsky, born on September 8, 1940 in Brooklyn, New York, is primarily known as a poet for children but he is also a gifted musician, actor, photographer, sculptor and potter. Prelutsky studied at Hunter College for two years. He proposed to his future wife, Carolynn, on the day they met; vis mere she accepted the next day. While growing up in Brooklyn, Prelutsky studied voice at The High School of Music and Art in New York and first planned to be an opera singer. However, he decided he did not have the drive to sing opera, and he became a folk singer. Later he tried his hand at drawing. For fun, he wrote some short poems and made some drawings, which became his first publication. He has since published numerous books of illustrated poetry and also provided illustrations for books by other writers, including many in translation. Prelutsky never condescends to his young readers. He deals in verse with many imaginative creatures, but he also writes about people and problems such bullies, school, and fear of the dark. He is aware of the sound of his words and likes to perform his poetry to the accompaniment of the guitar. He visits schools and libraries to perform his work. Jack Prelutsky is the recipient of numerous awards. In 1977 The Children's Book Council honored him for Nightmares: Poems to Trouble Your Sleep. His other award-winners are The Mean Old Mean Hyena, The Headless Horseman Rides Tonight, and The New Kid on the Block. In 2006, the Poetry Foundation named Prelutsky the inaugural winner of the Children's Poet Laureate award. His book Behold the Bold Umbrellaphant and Other Poems (illustrated by Carin Berger) won the 2007 Scandiuzzi Children's Book Award of the Washington State Book Awards in the Picture Book category.

Anmeldelser

An Awful Ogre Running Wild, written by Jack Prelutsky and illustrated by Paul O Zielinski, was published in 2008. The author, Jack Prelutsky, has won many awards, including the Children's Poet Laureate award from the Poetry Foundation, and the illustrator Paul Zielinski, a Caldicott award winner. This is the second book of poems compiled about the awful ogre. The poems in the book are written for younger children in kindergarten through fourth grade. These silly poems are all about this Awful Ogre and how he does so many socially unacceptable things, though is having a good time. What's great about these poems is that they take real situations with a spin of humor on them. When the Ogre visits his grandmother, who does nothing but complain, or when the Awful Ogre tries to ride a horse and realizes that he's too big, he must walk and ends up with sore feet. He may find himself all alone on the top of the Mountain, yet he accepts it was worth the climb anyway.… (mere)

A beautifully illustrated collection of poetry from the 20th century. The poems are organized into one or two-page spreads with cohesive themes and illustrations. The poems are fun and interesting, striking a balance between relevance to children and expansive themes. The accompanying art is lovely and often directly references the poems.

This book goes through a collection of short poems. Each poem has their own topicand has a silly theme. These poems are all the author, Dennis Lee's, favorite poems

I recommend this fun book to primary students. It is great for new readers as they are short easy reading for the kids to stay! Would love to have this as an option for students in my library.
