Shop Poems & Collections from Jack Prelutsky

Jack Prelutsky is a renowned children's poet. In fact, he is the first Children's Poet Laureate as named by the Poetry Foundation. With humble beginnings and 3 failed attempts to pass his English studies in college, Jack Prelutsky found himself working part time in a bookstore drawing animals. After his friend convinced him to send his drawing to a publisher, he added poems to go with the drawing at the last minute. Prelutsky was surprised to hear back from the editor saying they only wanted the poems which only took a couple of hours to put together. They didn't care about the drawings. Since then, Jack Prelutsky has published countless collections of poetry for children and adults alike. His selected works include It's Halloween, The Mean Old Hyena, Something BIG Has Been Here, and more. Shop our selection of Jack Prelutsky poems and poetry collections below.
