A Light in the Attic

I bought this book for my granddaughter. It is a classic book to own and a good introduction to poetry. I read this book to my own boys and they loved it. It is a great book that stays with you . My granddaughter loves this book.

Awesome book.!

This book is great for all ages, My 8 year old got it from Santa and Loves it! Would love to have received it as a baby gift! Book Great for all ages.


Shel Siverstein is the best! Great for boys and girls 7-13, even adults! Introduces 'kids' of all ages to fun poetry.

Where does the sidewalk end? In the attic.

If you don't remember these rhymes from your childhood, then it's about time you visited the attic, "A Light in the Attic," that is. Silverstein combines humorous sketches, whimsical poetry and fanciful word play in another amusing collection. "Where the Sidewalk Ends" will always be my favorite, but poems like "Spelling Bee," "Deaf Donald," "Nobody" and "Little Abigail and the Beautiful Pony" definately make "A Light in the Attic" a close runner-up.If you know Silverstein's work, then you are familiar with his simple rhyming style. His flair for combining drawings and words make for a book that's much more than just a collection of poetry. His poems are an experience that would be diminished without the visual aspect.Silverstein's collections are great for all ages. I read them as a kid, but I enjoy them just as much now. Silverstein has the soul of a child, but the wit of a sage."The saddest thing I ever did seeWas a woodpecker peckin' at a plastic tree.He looks at me, and 'Friend,' says he,'Things ain't as sweet as they used to be.'"-Shel Silverstein page 83

The best book of all times, exiting and very funny.

This poem book is the best yet, I have never read any poems as funny as the ones Shel Silverstein writes."A Light in the Attic" is a book for people of all ages.The whole class of seventh graders enjoyed it.We were laughing our heads out when we heard the poem,"Standing is Stupid".I recomend this book to anyone who is having a bad day and wants a moment of happiness!
