I suppose it depends...If it were their copy of the book I wouldn't mind, but if it was my personal copy that I lent them under with the trust they would return my child safe and sound...I would probably murder them. No, I take that back--I'd definitely murder them.
Falling Up, A Light in the Attic and Where the Sidewalk Ends By Shel Silverstein ~ To re-read. Read these as a kid, but it's been so long. I have a feeling these would speak to a person on different levels as an adult. I have reread some of his poems recently and been blown away. Shel Silverstein needs to get back on my bedside table. <3

Watch as his button-down world gets shattered by Ernie's all-out, in-your-face outrageousness! Together they're the original odd couple.
