HILARIOUS letters from children to poet Jack Prelutsky.

Yesterday was Jack Prelutsky‘s birthday. How do I always miss these by one day?

As a celebration of our first children’s poet laureate,  I’d like to share a few letters from children written to Jack Prelutsky. They are featured on his website and I think they are hilarious!! To see more letters go to Jack’s website and click “Letters to Jack.”

Also, COMMENT on this blog for a CHANCE TO WIN Jack Prelutsky’s “The Frogs Wore Red Suspenders!

    What I love most about these is that I can see the mental connections / stream-of-thought that caused most of these letters to be as they are. Ideas on what a person should say when writing about themself, or when writing a letter, etcetera…

    My favorite letter is the one that says “My dog Cocoa seems to be interested in you.”

    These are fantastic!!

    Vicki — I agree! That one is SO FUNNY!

    Andrew — I felt the same way while reading them. I’m glad you enjoyed these as much as I did. 🙂
