A Light in the Attic

Today I picked up A Light In The Attic, a book of poems and drawings by Shel Silverstein (1932-1999). Man, that book is awesome. The drawings are witty, the poems wittier, and the whole thing invokes a sense of long-forgotten and very welcome plunge into the world of childish abandon. It kinda reminds me of Roald Dahl.
If it isn't considered copyright infringment, I wanna share one of the poems with you:


She wanted to play the piano
But her hands couldn't reach the keys.
When her hands could finally reach the keys,
Her feet couldn't reach the floor.
When her hands could finally reach the keys,
And her feet could reach the floor,
She didn't want to play that ol' piano anymore.


If you're a fan of short limmericky-style poems, or Roald Dahl, definately get a copy of this book. It's refreshing.
