A Light in the Attic (Hardcover)
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.

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.Read More

Questions & Answers
I was introduced to this book when I was in the 3rd grade back in 1988. The teacher that introduced it to me, use to allow me to take it home. I fell in love with reading even more. I have two small children and i would love for them to have access to things that opened up my mind and vocabulary and hope they have a little fun while doing so. They don't make books like this anymore. CLASSIC!!
This is for a baby shower. I read this book to my children, and still read it to my students. It is timeless.
