Silverstein hits the mark with this fun to share book. It is silly and a fun way to explore the wonder of words. Great part of a school poetry collection!

This book is just as good as the authors others. If you love the light in the attic and such you will love this one. It reverses the first letter of words in a sentence like it is a language from the rabbits. I read one page to my students and taught a whole lesson using it. I have to say before you read it a loud practice ahead of time because the words become tongue twisters. Great.

What a fun book, for kids and adults
This book is great fun for kids and adults alike! With a Dr. Seuss style, kids will be overtaken by giggles and and overwhelming urge to make this sryle of writing their own. Reminiscent of the "Name Game', this is something everyone can do! Kids will love seeing adults confuse themselves while reading, and will glory in attempting to do it themselves. This is a must have for Shel Silverstein fans and new readers alike!
