The poems and artwork may seem a bit primitive if you’ve been dazzled by his later work, but it was a good start. The illustrations are strange lumpish watercolors, not particularly impressive, but some of them are entertaining. Here are my two favorite poems: Someone has mistaken this one for a pincushion and he’s This is Shel Silverstein’s very first poetry collection. Someone has mistaken this one for a pincushion and he’s too polite to say he isn’t. We’ve been caught by a Quick-Digesting Gink And now we are dodging his teeth And now we’re restin’ In his small intestine, And now we’re back out on the street Mar 25, Roanna Benfield rated it it was amazing.
Well, firstly I can’t really say anything wrong about this book for me. This is probably because my Grandparents had a copy and every time we went round theirs my Grandad would read them to me and my sister. The book has so many good memories for me and I love it. I love the way that the poetry opens up a new world for the reader and although the poetry does seem more suited for younger children I still enjoy reading them immensely.
Jul 13, Nabila Tabassum Chowdhury rated it it was ok Shelves: Feb 22, DyolF Dixon rated it really liked it Shelves: One creature called the book a zoo. The poet uses alliteration, assonance and repetition. The illustrations are of creatures that look funny and might even be a little scary.
There is one creature in color with a poem on each page. The pages have more white space than the creatures and the poetry combined.
The poet sends out images and words that make you not want to see, smell, or touch them especially in the dark of night. Each poem has at least two lines that rhyme. The rhymes are contrived. These poems are good for practicing phonics. The age level for this book is k After this book is read a few times, it should be left out to see if the students can phonetically pronounce the names of the creatures.
This poet is showing poems in a new and fresh way. His message is poetry can change the rules anytime it wants. This mean the poets make their own rules and that means there are no rules in poetry.

Children will and have loved this collection because of the way the book makes them use there imaginations when reading these poems about all these fictional creatures. The text is large and easy to read with a lot of white space around it and very little puncuation.

The illustrations bring a look to these creatures to help the reader visualize the abstract cratures that Silverstein writes about. This collection is a classic that children will continue to enjoy. Compare some of those animals with fictional creatures tha Silverstein writes about.
Apr 07, Rebecca rated it really liked it. Shel Silverstein really knows the rules of poetry. He has flawless rhymes – unless he wants to play with them and break them, and then it works because he knows the rules so well. Some of these are super short, yet he always gets something across whether it’s in a 2 page or 2 line poem.

My 5 year old and I just read this for the first time and laughed and giggled all the way through. So if you’re a fan of good ole Shel, then this book might ylump just the book for you!
Loved the color drawings and the poems were great. Sep 26, Jon athan Nakapalau rated it it was amazing Shelves: Oh how I wish Shel Silverstein and Dr.
Seuss would have done books with each other! This book did remind me of Dr.
Jun 19, Chandler Jordahl rated it liked it Shelves: This was Shel Silverstein’s first collection of poems. All of poems feature various creatures and plenty of rhymes.
The poems are paired with illustrations, however they are very simple and tend to appear like blobs of color. While there was nothing wrong with these poems, they did not “wow me” like Shel Silverstein’s later work. Young children would enjoy the silly language and made up creatures, as you really need to use your imagination. I would recommend for PreK-grade 2. Poems about made up creatures, most accompanied by a watercolor illustration.

I’m a big fan of Shel Silverstein. As a kid I listened to his recording of Where the Sidewalk Ends countless times. The stuff in here was originally published in Playboy in the s, then collected into a book inbut I somehow only found it yesterday. Not a problem though. A lot of the rhymes and animals remind me of Edward Gorey’s creatures, though some are complete Lewis Carroll Adorable.

Don’t Bump the Glump! and Other Fantasies
Probably good for reading aloud if you work through the pronunciation on your own first. Jan 03, Gauri rated it it was ok. This is the fifth Silverstein book I’ve read to my brother before bedtime. This one wasn’t as fun for us, and we found that a couple of times, we couldn’t figure out what was funny. This book is a set of poems about fictional monsters or wild creatures that Silverstein made up, all with funny names.
I think the fun of it was meant to be that it would be fun to hear all of the names out loud and have them rhyme with other English words, but other than this routine, there wasn’t that much content. I think the charm of Silverstein’s poems is that he portrays life experiences with a sense of humor and in a whimsical way, which appeals to children and adults alike.
This was just a book about animals. Not bad, but not great.

Nov 10, Alma Diaz rated it really liked it. Dont Bump the Glump! Thw book is illustrated with funny and scary colored creatures in each page. This story is a poetry book, but the rhymes in this story are contrived. There are about four to six lines on each page and they describe what is going in each page and who are the creatures in the story.
