it was amazing

Falling up is my favorite edition of Shel Silverstein’s books. Although I love all of his books I believe this is the first one I read and ever since I was a child I just really liked it. His style of poetry is so different than any other style and it definitely makes him stand out. I also love his illustrations through out all of his series. Of course my favorite poem in this book is:

I tripped on my shoelace
And I fell up--
Up to the roof tops,
Up over the town,
Up past the tree tops,
Up over the mountains,
Up where the colors
Blend into the sounds.
But it got me so dizzy
When I looked around,
I got sick to my stomach
And I threw down.

Of course this would never happen but as a child it just makes you laugh. Even as an adult I still laugh.
