Book Review: A Light In The Attic

July 18, 2009

This is a review from my Favorite Books list; the link from which will be also on the Books Page.

“She’s my only true hate…”

Shel Silverstein penned this book of poems which I read so many times a s a kid that I can still recall chunks of many of the entries (Performed for the class in 4th grade: “Backward Bill, Backward Bill, lives way up on a backward hill, which is really a hole in the sandy ground — but that’s a hill turned upside down…”).

All of the poems are no longer than one page, and many are only a few lines. They all come with great black-and-white illustrations, though, which really helped burn them into my memory over so many years. All of the poems also, as best my memory serves me, rhymed — a preference of mine when it comes to prose. Writing this reminds me that I must obtain a copy of this book because I don’t currently have one.
