Publisher's Summary

Listen to these irresistible poems and learn about things that you may never have thought about before. There's jellyfish stew, a ridiculous dog, and a boneless chicken. Meet a wolf at the laundry, a monster in a swamp, and an alley cat with one life left. Visit Gussie's Greasy Spoon and Bleezer's Ice Cream Store. Hear about what happened when Dracula went to the blood bank, and enjoy the song of the gloopy Gloppers.
