About the Author

Jack Prelutsky is the best-selling author of more than fifty books of poetry, including The New Kid on the Block, illustrated by James Stevenson, and Stardines Swim High Across the Sky, illustrated by Carin Berger. Jack Prelutsky lives in Washington State.

Carin Berger is an award-winning designer and illustrator. Her cut-paper collages are made using ephemera, such as catalogues, old books, receipts, letters, and ticket stubs. In a starred review, Kirkus said of her Forever Friends, "Sophisticated, sensitive, and accessible, this picture book will offer new insights and pleasures with each season." The Little Yellow Leaf was a 2008 New York Times Best Illustrated Children's Books selection, and in starred reviews, Publishers Weekly called her A Perfect Day "lovely" and her Finding Spring "exceptional." She is also the illustrator of the acclaimed Stardines Swim High Across the Sky and Behold the Bold Umbrellaphant, both by Jack Prelutsky, among other books. She lives with her family in New York City. www.carinberger.com

Reviews

Praise for Scranimals: "Hilarious, inventive."--Kirkus Reviews
"Pretty brilliant."--Kirkus Reviews
"Spectacular [and] witty. . . . Has the feel of a vintage science project by the weirdest (and most imaginative) kid in class. The zoology may be suspect, but the laughs are guaranteed."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"Prelutsky tweaks language with his characteristic glee, wedging in plenty of humor."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
Praise for Behold the Bold Umbrellaphant and Other Poems: "This is definitely a 'do not miss' poetry pick."--School Library Journal (starred review)
"Young readers will behold a wonderful, fantasically silly book."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
