Uncle Shelby's ABZ Book (ISBN 067121148X) is a satirical alphabet book by Shel Silverstein. First published in 1961, it is sometimes described as "subversive". The cover on some editions of the book read "A primer for adults only" while other editions read "A primer for tender young minds" instead.

Who wouldn’t want an adult alphabet book?! I love Shel Silversteins writing and I would love to own all of his books. I actually hadn’t heard of this one until recently so this one needs to be added to my shelf!

Have you read this book yet? What are your thoughts on it?


  1. I never heard about the book or the author but I will look them both up right now. :)
    Hope you get it soon!

    1. Oooh You should definitely read something by him. He's a great poet.

  2. Awww, I love Shel Silverstein!! Did you know that today is his birthday? I love all of his poetry books -- but this one I'm not familiar with. So glad you highlighted it -- I'll need to find a copy to read!

    My Wednesday Post

    1. I didn't know that it was his birthday! Hope perfect was this then!?

  3. I absolutely love Shel Silverstein's poetry, but I never heard of this book of his. Plus, the idea of an adultish alphabet book is super tempting -- so I'll definitely be on the look out for this one.

    From your new GFC follower,
