Jack Prelutsky has written ten anthologies of poetry and over forty “kid-friendly.” Long considered the “unofficial poet laureate of schoolkids”; in 2006 he was officially named the nation’s first Children’s Poet Laureate. In this collection, which Prelutsky attributes to his love of Star Trek, he takes you on a wild ride around an imaginary universe, showing you what the many different planets could be like. While essentially all of them seem to have some creature or some attribute that will kill you – begging the question of why anyone would ever want to visit outer space – he nevertheless reveals to the young reader the wide variety of alien life that could be out there. Richly and colorfully illustrated by Jimmy Pickering, it’s a great book to read to kids, with Prelutsky’s large vocabulary and heavy dose of multi-syllable words, which will have parents reaching for the dictionary to give exact definitions. But with the bizarre and colorful aliens, kids will be thoroughly entertained, along with a game where some planet’s names are anagrams to be solved (answers are in the back of the book). The Swamps of Sleethe is a fun book to teach kids lots of new words and perhaps to start them on the first step to an obsession with science fiction.For more book reviews and exclusive author interviews, go to BookBanter.
