Publisher's Summary

"As soon as Fred gets out of bed, his underwear goes on his head. His mother laughs, 'Don't put it there, a head's no place for underwear!' But near his ears, above his brains, is where Fred's underwear remains."

"I am digging a hole in the ceiling in order to gaze at the sky, I began at the end of September, I intend to be done by July."

©1984 Jack Prelutsky; (P)2007 HarperCollins Publishers

Critic Reviews

"Fans of the earlier volumes will rejoice in finding more of the same....frivolous, rib-tickling verses". (Publishers Weekly)

Something Great Has Been Heard Here

This is one of the first Jack Prelutsky recordings I have ever heard during my schooling days as a kid. This audio title contains 24 poems taken from Prelutsky's 1990 book of poems. One of my favorites is "My Brother Built a Robot".

"Something Big Has Been Here" is a favorite title to share with Prelutsky fans and poetry lovers everywhere. It's highly recommended! What more needs to be said?

Some of the funniest poems ever.

If you could sum up Something Big Has Been Here in three words, what would they be?

Funniest poems ever.

What other book might you compare Something Big Has Been Here to and why?

It's just as good as the New Kid on the Block, some of the same music team was used.

What about Jack Prelutsky’s performance did you like?

The voices he can do.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Glorious Garden, beautiful music.

Any additional comments?

From the worst repair man ever, to a malfunctioning robot, and more, this book is hilarious.
