It’s not often you see kids reading books of poetry. Except for Shell Silverstein, I know I never did as a kid. I always found them to be bland and confusing. Then my reading buddy, a kid a read to every Friday during lunch, picks up this book. 'The Swamps of Sleethe?' I thought. 'Alright, I already like the bold color in the cover.' But when I opened the book, I found more than just a bold cover.
For starters, all the pages where just as bold and colorful as the cover. The bright colors and pictures really draw you into the book. No more bland poetry. Each of the 19 poems are about weird and scary planets that no human should visit, but if you do beware the demon birds from Lonithor will get you. For an added bonus, some of the planet names are anagrams and for us readers, Prelutsky provides clues on how to pronounce some of the weirder planet and creature names.
