First Silverstein poem I ever memorized to recite to my mother hoping she would sell mine!
Ha! Love that poem! I'm not so sure my little sister does...Have a great weekend. ☺
Freakling, sounds interesting and like something I would say. Cause I like to make up new words to call my kids, like friglets...lol.
Great poem! I'm sure that's how my brothers felt. LOL
I agree with you about Freakling! :)
I absolutely love book covers that get you guessing and draw you in. Something I'd like to aspire to.As for sisters - take 'em or leave 'em.
Reminds me of the Olsen twins song "Brother for sale, only 50 cents. The poem was funny and that cover choice you made left me curious about the book as well.
You have such a fun blog! I come away smiling.
I'm fairly certain that this was my sister's favorite poem when we were younger :DThanks for the childhood flashback. Have a great weekend!
Lol that poem! I don't have a sister, but I have a brother whom I would have wanted to sell when we were kids! Amazing how maturity changes all that. From the A-Z neighborhood,D is for Deecoded
It's interesting to see how others are doing the A to Z April blog and the words people are coming up with!! Interesting poetry!!
your posts have been so awesome! love the poems and stimulating images! plus featured bloggers! so much to see!
Freakling is a great read. I hope you enjoy it! I met Lana at WIFYR last summer. And that poem, my oldest would happily sell off his youngest sister: it's been one of those days.
That's a great poem. My sister and I hardly spoke through our high school years. I was a bit too weird for my super cool and very popular younger sister. She is three years my junior and our fashion and musical tastes were diametrically opposed. I was the greasy rocker and she the lover of ra-ra skirts and bubblegum pop. Now however, I think she is bonkers and phenomenal in equal measure.
Aw, that poor little sister! (And, I suppose, that poor older sibling who can't unload her!) ;-)I'm drawn to that blue on the cover as well.Some Dark Romantic
That book looks steampunky. I always liked that Silverstein poem, being the oldest of five and all. Though it was brothers I'd be selling. My baby sister was only 4 when I got married and moved out.Shannon at The Warrior Muse

Oh, I don't like the poem. Poor sister. I enjoyed the post. Rhonda @Laugh-Quotes.comVisiting from AtoZ #41
I liked that, surely the way i felt about my lil bro. :)- A fellow blogger from A to Z!
I am really enjoying this blog (when I can get here- sheesh! there's a lot of AtoZers!!) It's fun to revisit these old poems from my childhood. And I have an 8-year-old now who also loves Silverstein...Ruby is participating in the A to Z ChallengeRuby Wilbur
I have two daughters that fight incessantly. I can picture one of them doing this.
My kids fight way too much too. I usually end up separating them. *sigh*
I successfully traded my sister a few weeks ago for my choir president's older sister. Her dad agreed. Our sisters weren't happy. hahaThis also reminds me of Mary-Kate and Ashley's song "Brother for Sale". The price kept going down, and he was free by the end of the song. lol
I heart me some good comments... and pumpkin spice latte's too!
