Korney Chukovsky (Корней Чуковский). From Two to Five (От двух до пяти). Korney (Kornei) Ivanovich Chukovsky (1882-1969) was a popular poet whose catchy, inventive rhymes and absurd characters put him on par with Dr. Seuss. Favorites include Tarakanishche ("The Monster Cockroach"), Krokodil ("The Crocodile"), Telefon ("The Telephone") and Moydodyr ("Wash-'em-Clean"). He adapted the Doctor Dolittle stories into a book-length Russian poem as Doctor Aybolit ("Dr. Ow-It-Hurts"), and translated a substantial portion of the Mother Goose canon into Russian as Angliyskiye Narodnyye Pesenki ("English Folk Rhymes"). He was also an influential literary critic and essayist, including this passionate out-of-print book about how children craft meaning from language at an early age (i.e., from Two Years Old to Five Years Old).
