Last night while I lay thinking here
Some Whatifs crawled inside my ear
And pranced and partied all night long
And sang their same old Whatif song:

Whatif I flunk that test?
Whatif green hair grows on my chest?
Whatif nobody likes me?
Whatif a bolt of lightning strikes me?...

Here in the attic of Shel Silverstein you will find Backward Bill, Sour Face Ann, the Meehoo with an Exactlywatt, and the Polar Bear in the Frigidaire. You will talk with Broiled Face, and find out what happens when Somebody steals your knees, you get caught by the Quick-Digesting Gink, a Mountain snores, and They Put a Brassiere on the Camel.

From the creator of the beloved poetry collections Where the Sidewalk Ends and Falling Up, here is another wondrous book of poems and drawings.

Also you need the book jacket otherwise your fingers turn black from the bookcover

We own "Where the Sidewalk Ends" and read it to our little boy. We thought it was fun and goofy so we decided to purchase another Shel book of poems. While they are in the same spirit and style of Silverstein, the poems also have a bit of an edge to them. Like, it feels like Shel was going through something when he wrote these. They give off an odd vibe that I don''t necessarily like reading to my kid, and it makes me a bit uneasy, too. Not my favorite Silverstein offering and I would recommend another one of his poetry collections.

I grew up with Shel Silverstein. A Light in the Attic, Where the Sidewalk Ends and The Giving Tree were reading staples. When we had to move to school at home because of Covid-19, my daughter''s teacher didn''t supply us with a classroom reader. As a 6-year-old reading a few grade levels above her classmates, her teacher felt it would be better to read for fun rather than "for learning." So we''ve been reading lots of early chapter books and moving toward younger middle-grade novels. But it''s hard to find stories that aren''t too "old" in subject matter.

That''s where Shel Silverstein comes in. There are so many layers to his poems, which vary in length and hilarity. They ask that readers look beyond face value. I love watching my daughter develop her critical thinking skills when we read them. And she loves the silliness/irreverence. A Light in the Attic is a classic that should be in every home.

Classic poetry collection with a few bonuses. I would have preferred a black and white cover like the original but I know the gold is due to being a special edition with extra poems, so I can’t rightly take any points away for it.

If you don’t already have this poetry collection in your life, ask yourself why because it’s so nice to read on days when you need a little laughter and a lifted spirit.

This collection does have all original illustrations that you expect, no redone art to fear.

I ordered this for my 8 year old after we completed another Shel Silverstein book. She loves the different poems and entries in the book. I had these when I was younger and enjoyed them a lot, so I wanted her to get the same enjoyment. For the most part she can read this on her own with no help. There are some passages with difficult words to pronounce and also words that have the spelling somewhat changed or just a randomly made up word all together. This is a good buy for nightly bedtime story or just to pass time throughout the day. There are a mixture of funny passages and some serious ones, as well as ones that will leave you scratching your head because it made no sense or just seemed a little odd.

This is a wonderful poetry book for children! It’s imaginative and fun. Shel Silverstein is “gateway” poetry. My son is in his late 30s and grew up on his poetry. He is still an avid reader of prose and poetry. I bought this and other Shel Silverstein books for my grandkids for Christmas. At first, my grandson (who is 5), looked at all the pages and said, “Ugh! Granny, this is too long!!!” My daughter-in-law read a few of the poems to him and now he requests it. This is a gem.

This is one of those books that should be considered mandatory reading for any child. I read this as a child and forgot about it until just a few years ago. A friend of mine had a child and when thinking of what might make a nice gift, I remembered how happy Shel Silverstein made me as a kid. You know it''s good writing when you can remember verbatim the words (lyrics?) of certain poems (more specifically, the "twistable turnable man").

Do your children a favor and get them this book. It''s like fuel for their imagination.

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on February 28, 2019
Just discovered Shel Silverstein and bought three different poetry books for grand children age 3,6 and 9. The extended family have now all bought some of his books. The poems appeal to all ages and are an absolute delight.
