    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 ...

    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 andFalling Up, here is another wondrous book of poems and drawings.

    • For kids young and old

      I ordered a"A Light In The Attic" for my 6 year old niece's birthday. I gave this book to my daughter when she was 8 and she loved it. The whole family memorized poems from it and at 22 years later we can still recite The Polar Bear In The Fridgedaire." This book is a must for every child's library and is a great incentive for kids to read more.

      My daughter went through some books that she had outgrown for her cousin, but couldn't part with this one. So we bought a copy to give to my niece for Christmas. My kids have always loved Shel Silverstein.
