      Every child eventually discovers the perverted old man who wrote songs for Johnny Cash, did illustrations for Playboy, appeared on the Dr Demento show numerous times, and managed to get a few books published along the way For some reason, parents never seem to think this creepy old guy who was so fond of children was in any way disturbing, something I m continually impressed with in the ban now, ask questions later climate of modern culture If there are people who don t like Shel Silverstein, I [...]

      I am crap at reciting from books Sure, I know your super famous opening lines and popular misquotations, but I don t really, like, pause in my reading to note a particularly nice turn of phrase so I can commit it to memory.Which is odd, because I have always had a pretty good memory for the spoken word and, especially, lyrics When I was little, my parents found this most amusing They would hear me playing in my bedroom, singing random snatches of commercial jingles and songs from A Prairie Home [...]

      One of my most favorite authors of my youth, Silverstein does a most excellent job of tapping into the heart of a child Whether it be a child s heart in an adult or an actual child, the result is the same pure and simple joy Silverstein excels not only in rhyming, but his use of adjectives in the English language when describing things such as icky, stick, peanut butter sandwiches makes this a joy not only to listen to, but to read out loud as well I remember having it read to me for the first t [...]

      TRUE STORYThis morning I jumped on my horseAnd went out for a ride.And some wild outlaws chased meAnd they shot me in the side.So I crawled into a wildcat s caveTo find a place to hide,But some pirates found me sleeping there,And soon they had me tiedTo a pole and built a fireUnder me I almost criedTill a mermaid came and cut me looseAnd begged to be my bride.So I said I d come back WednesdayBut I must admit I lied.Then I ran into a jungle swampBut I forgot my guideAnd I stepped into some quicks [...]

      One of my favorites from when I was a kid I remember this book along with light in the attic always being checked out of the school library and not wanting to give it back when my turn was up.Re visiting it as an adult, I found some of the poems I didn t care for but plenty of my old favorites still had me smiling and sometimes reading them again before turning the page.Just a fun book, highly recommend

      I forgot I had this book, so long ago my art teacher gave me a copy I memorized so many of these poems just re reading it now I am surprised at how many stayed with me To hear Shel read them is an experience he has a pretty creepy voice on some of them.Leaves me singing On the cover of Rolling Stone.
