HarperCollins has re-released two classic compilations of illustrated young adult poetry, both by widely beloved children's book author Shel Silverstein, to celebrate their respective anniversaries. A Light in the Attic (0060256737, $17.99) is now in its 25th anniversary edition and its poems with wordplay, wit, humor, silly black-and-white drawings, and pure irreverent fun. Falling Up (0060248025, $17.99) offers more of the same unforgettably funny verse that is sure to appeal to young and old alike. Both are excellent for reading aloud at bedtime, for young children who have mastered easy reader books but aren't quite ready for chapter books, or for just plain wacky fun. "The Lost Cat": We can't find the cat / We don't know where she's at / Oh, where did she go? / Does anyone know? / Let's ask this walking hat.
