Prelutsky, J. (1996). A pizza the size of the sun. New York: Greenwillow Books.

Prelutsky does a great job of writing high interest poetry for children. Similar to Shel Silberstein, Prelutsky invites the reader to the world of poetry with silly topics and outlandish comments. This is a great resource to start talking to students about rhyme scheme, stanzas and lines, as students will be happy to analyze and discuss poems such as Bugs! Bugs! or I Think My Computer is Crazy.

Highly Recommended *****
