"A Light in the Attic" A great poetry book
  The repetition is Shel Silversteins' "Nobody" is the word nobody, he constantly uses it more than once
I'm trying to figure this out too! The theme of it most likely has to do with the simplicity of a child's mind, perhaps the meaning is "what you don't know can't hurt you" or "ignorance is bliss". In any case, this poem is an excellent example of irony, I hope that helps! Good luck!
i'm not 100% sure but i think he had a dachshund (red). I believe he had a picture of it at hte end of one of his books but i'm not 100% sure
