We gave it an A+

Children’s poetry doesn’t get any better, or sillier, than A Light in the Attic. Whether it’s Mr. Smeds and Mr. Spats with their 21 heads and 21 hats, or the babysitter who sits on the baby, Silverstein constantly finds new and irreverent subjects as well as fresh and startling twists to old ones. Children take to his silliness the way Mr. Spats’ hats take to Mr. Smeds’ heads. A+
