"Adults who grew up with Uncle Shelby will find themselves wiping their eyes by the time they get to the end of this collection; children new to the master will find themselves hooked." -- Kirkus Reviews

"...Chockfull of the whimsical humor, eccentric characters, childhood fantasies, and iconoclastic glee that [Silverstein's] many fans adore...The volume includes some of Silverstein's strongest work, brilliantly capturing his versatility and topsy-turvy viewpoint." -- Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"'Every Thing on It' is bound to give a thrill to new young readers - while providing a time-travel experience for their parents who probably first read 'The Giving Tree' and Silverstein's other books years ago and were changed by them." -- Los Angeles Times

"A multigenerational book for fun in family spaces." -- Chicago Tribune

Shel Silverstein, an iconic American author, is celebrated for his profound and enduring contributions to children's literature, songwriting, and poetic creativity. Born on September 25, 1930, in Chicago, Illinois, Silverstein's talent began to blossom during his teenage years. After a stint in the military, Silverstein's idiosyncratic cartoons caught the eye of Hugh Hefner, landing him a gig as a cartoonist for Playboy Magazine, a fruitful collaboration that lasted over 40 years and kickstarted his multifaceted career. Silverstein's profound literary impact is best embodied in his profound children's books, most notably "The Giving Tree" and "Where the Sidewalk Ends." His unique blend of whimsy, humor, and sagacity, delivered in non-traditional, free verse rhythms, has charmed generations, encouraging young readers to explore their imaginations against the grain of conventional storytelling norms. A gifted and sensitive author, he used the platform of children's literature to convey deeper, often philosophical messages, and his books have been translated into more than 30 languages. In addition to his literary achievements, Silverstein was an established musician and songwriter, penning hit songs for a number of well-known artists such as Johnny Cash and Loretta Lynn. Silverstein, who passed away in May 1999, left behind an extraordinary legacy that transcends genres and generations. His impact on literature, music, and art continues to inspire and entertain, making him an undeniable treasure in American creative history.
