Rated 4 out of 5 by from its good I love Shel Silverstein. I introduced his books to my then, 5 year old son. He loves, Where The Sidewalk Ends. This collection is not as great as the first one, but its still good to have.

From Our Editors

Join Mr. Mud and the Creepin' Crud, Drooler and Belchin' Bob in this ridiculous follow-up to Where the Sidewalk Ends and A Light in the Attic. The wonderfully irreverent poems are back with a vengeance and kids are gonna love 'em! Shel Silverstein turns his legendary phrases in more than 100 more poems accompanied by his hilariously distinctive pictures. Kids and adults alike will split their sides when they read about the short 10-year-old who grows another foot - on top of his head; the terrified girl who thinks there's a mouse in her hair - it's only an elephant; and the many other strange and wonderful characters who pepper the pages.
