    1987 my son drew a picture about Grandma giving underwear for Christmas. He wrote It's Christmas Jakck Prelutsky. Did you write a poem like this? I want to frame this priceless pic with your poem.

    He is a creative writer who interests his reader easily with his choice of vocab.

    I think Jack Prelutsky is a great poet. Our 5th grade class is doing poems for Halloween on Jack Prelutsky. He is so creative in his poetry. Each one of our classmates has a spooky line. He is a great poet.

The Visitor

it came today to visit
and moved into the house
it was smaller than an elephant
but larger than a mouse

first it slapped my sister
then it kicked my dad
then it pushed my mother
oh! that really made me mad
