"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

A Look Inside A Light In the Attic Special Edition
(Click on Images to Enlarge)
|"Backward Bill"||"Presents, Presents, Presents"|
From the Back Cover
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 the Broiled Face, and find out what happens when someone steals your knees, you get caught by the Quick-Digesting Gink, a mountain snores, and they’ve put a brassiere on the camel.
With 12 never-before-published poems, here is a special edition of this beloved poetry collection, from the creator of Where the Sidewalk ends and Falling Up.

From his humble writing beginnings in Playboy to his beloved children's poems Silverstein is a classic. Silverstein inspires imagination and whimsy. Decades later, I find myself reading these again with my daughter and I still love them. Now I can love them with a new generation.
I remember these books from when I was a kid. Checking them out at the library at school. So I wanted another copy. This is one of my favorites of his. I like the good color special edition cover that comes with this.
Highly recommend all of his poem books.
