But Shel Silverstein looks more like a burglar or a pirate, than someone who should be writing books for kids.
Greg Heffley

Sheldon Allan "Shel" Silverstein (September 25, 1930 - May 10, 1999) was a real-life American writer known for his cartoons, songs, and children's books. He appears in The Last Straw and the online book.

History[]

The Last Straw[]

When Greg Heffley was younger, his father used to read him a Shel Silverstein book called "The Giving Tree" every night. The book had a picture of Shel Silverstein on the back, which disturbed Greg because he thought Shel looked more like a pirate or a burglar than someone who was publishing books for kids.

After catching Greg getting out of bed one night, Frank used his fear of Shel Silverstein against him by saying that if he did so again, he might run into Shel in the hallway. As a result, Greg stopped getting out of bed at night and still doesn't, even if he needs to use the bathroom.

Online[]

Frank reads "A Light in the Attic" when he used Greg's fear of Shel against him. Other than this obscure difference, Shel Silverstein plays the same role as he did in The Last Straw.[1]
