It's such a pleasure to hear a new Shel Silverstein poem. The reader has such fun with the funny words and words play that I laughed and laughed and laughed. The characters are cute and silly and my children loved it. I have to recommend this title to all parents and children, especially if they already have the book so they can read along. CLASSIC!
