  3. If you like “V is for violence,” you’ll love Uncle Shelby, Shel Silverstein’s parody of alphabet books. Amazon has Z:

    Z is for zoo

    Let’s go to the zoo

    See all the animals!

    The animals are locked inside the cages.

    Poor animals!

    Who will let them out???

    See the elephant in the zoo. Give the nice elephant some peanut shells with pepper inside. That will be a good joke on him. Ha. Ha. Ha Ha. The elephant is mad but don’t worry — By tomorrow the elephant will have forgotten all about it.

    Poor hippopotomus. The hippopotumos has a bone stuck in his throat and can’t get it out. Poor hipopothomus the hipopottomos has no fingers like you do. Poor hipotopomus. Say, maybe he is not a real hiptopomos after all. Maybe he is really a royal prince that has been turned into a hipopotomos by a wicked witch and when some person takes the bone out of his throat the spell will be broken and he will turn back into a prince again and give whoever did it a million dollars in gold and a horse and a castle.

    See the hippopotimus in the zoo


    I like K…

    K is for keys. Look, there are mommy’s keys. Why don’t you dig a big hole and bury them in the back yard?
