For more than half a century, 88-year-old veteran author-journalist and great-grandfather Howard Eisenberg has read his whimsical doggerel to appreciative audiences at family birthdays, anniversaries, Valentine Days, retirements and bar mitzvahs.

The whimsical Guess Who Zoo poems ballpoint-penned on postcards to his grandchildren in 1988 from a Qantas jet at 30,000 feet.

The interactive poems -- last word left blank so the kids could guess the animal -- were written on a book and zoo tour of Australia with his late wife, Arlene, co-author of the classic "What to Expect" book series.

As a result of a suggestion Arlene made 25 years ago, the postcard poems have been published by Mascot Books .
Howard has done readings from his books at schools, hospitals, The Poets House and is available for events, and tv/radio appearances.

The group produced a Guess Who Zoo CD. W ith the help of composer Sherwin Kaufman and producers Ann Ruckert and Jimmy "The Whiz" Wisner, he set out to generate "a buzz." and created a Guess Who Zoo Troupe to perform the poems as songs at children's museums, schools, and hundreds of birthday parties as a first step toward publishing them.

There is a three-book series, with a cd, and now a blanket! Perfect for the holidays and fun for the whole family!

Please watch the 2-minute promo featuring Brian Childers and Kimberly Faye Greenberg.

Howard is working on a "Time 2 Rhyme" Contest for Kids, a new Toddler Poem book, and he is also working with Jack Mulcahy (Brother's McMullen) on a one-man show called "The Pheenom" based on a baseball book that Howard wrote and the first reading will occur early 2016. He produced his musical "Million Dollar Bet," directed by Lee Lobenhofer, with a great cast at NYC's JCC Theater, starring Brian Childers and Renae Baker, is looking for a new theater to Produce a full scale production.
