Old Books Book Review: Uncle Shelby’s A, B, Z Book by Shel Silverstein

March 13, 2019

As much as I like Uncle Shelby’s A, B, Z Book by Shel Silverstein, I’ve never heard anybody else rave about it.  Silverstein fans tend to focus on The Giving Tree or Where the Sidewalk Ends.  I remember some poem about a girl who never took the garbage out.  All of those were okay, but I thought Uncle Shelby’s A, B, Z Book was at a completely different level.

Now that I’ve found my old copy of Uncle Shelby’s A, B, Z Book, I can talk about why I like it so much.  And why I think it’s a children’s book despite its tone and humor.  And why it just might be communist propaganda.
