A Pizza the Size of the Sun

Jack Prelutsky, Author, Jack Prelutsky, Performed by, Jack Prelutsky, Read by Listening Library $10 (0p) ISBN 978-0-8072-0418-4
In an inimitable troubadour tour-de-force, poet and performer Prelutsky (The Dragons Are Singing Tonight) serves up toe-tapping renditions of verses from his popular 1996 collection. Prelutsky's pleasantly warbling folksy singing voice nimbly leaps over tongue twisters and all sorts of playful rhymes in ditties like ""Dixxer's Excellent Elixir,"" ""Frenetica Fluntz"" and ""The Fummawummalummazumms."" And he's sure to elicit still more giggles when he occasionally raises his voice to a humorously affected falsetto on ""Gloppe's Soup Shoppe"" and a few other tunes. In between guffaws, young listeners will find lots of topics with surefire appeal: ""Bugs! Bugs!"" ""I Made Something Strange with My Chemistry Set"" and ""Eyeballs for Sale!"" Backed by a strong children's chorus and talented musicians on fiddle, banjo, mandolin and more, Prelutsky seems right at home. (He's the one playing the kazoo.) This often boisterous mix of silliness and song should prove entertaining for the whole family. All ages. (Dec.)
