A collection of 70 nonsense verses by that most prolific of poets, A. Nonny Mouse (long misspelled Anonymous due to a fateful typo). Prelutsky, a fellow poet and unabashed admirer, has compiled (along with four of his own creations) some of her most playful rhymes, limericks, quips, and chants--all with a touch of the wacky, the way-out, and the wonderful.

Poems of A. Nonny Mouse is a poetry book with a collection of poems by Jack Prelutsky. The book has a wide variety of poems and is great for everyone.

The point here is not the poems by Prelutsky, which I suppose would be fine if you were the kind of kid who liked that sort of thing, but that it's an excellent doorway to the art of the great Henrik Drescher, whose work you will want to seek out and fill your eyes with.
