Jack Prelutsky’s exploration of outer space is not for the faint of heart. No friendly little E.T.–type aliens await your arrival. There are many imaginative ways to perish in these darkly comedic cautionary verses about unexplored worlds so far beyond our solar system. The final poem is an environmental tour de force that packs a wallop. Here are poems the older reader will find great fun to memorize and rattle off to anyone who will listen! And there is a special bonus: anagrams for the kid who loves word puzzles.Amazon Exclusive: A Poem by Jack Prelutsky

They may be cold, they may be hot,
They may be huge or small.
They may be friendly, they may be not,
They may not care at all.
Perhaps one has a thousand arms
