Outside the Box: A Book of Poems Hardcover – Import, 11 March 2014
"Goode's ink-and-brush illustrations...are energetic and graceful at the same time. The art picks up the punch line of funny poems, amplifying the humor to laugh-out-loud levels.... Wilson dedicates the book to Shel Silverstein, and indeed the black-and-white illustrations and mixture of wry observation and kooky supposition recall Where the Sidewalk Ends (1974) and Falling Up (1996)." ― Booklist
