There are so many fun poems in this collection. Silverstein seems to have been especially good at looking at things from a kid’s perspective. He’s got poems about kid rights and what kids might want or need (a homework machine, a really good excuse for being late to school, replacement parents who let you get away with whatever you want, etc.) as well as poems about popular kid topics (pirates, monsters, etc.). It’s an eclectic selection, though, and I’m quite enjoying it.
