Book Overview: Where the Sidewalk Ends: Poems & Drawings (Anniversary)

Shel Silverstein, the New York Times bestselling author of The Giving TreeA Light in the AtticFalling Up, and Every Thing On It, has created a poetry collection that is outrageously funny and deeply profound. Come in...for where the sidewalk ends, Shel Silverstein's world begins. This special edition contains 12 extra poems.

You'll meet a boy who turns into a TV set, and a girl who eats a whale. The Unicorn and the Bloath live there, and so does Sarah Cynthia Sylvia Stout who will not take the garbage out. It is a place where you wash your shadow and plant diamond gardens, a place where shoes fly, sisters are auctioned off, and crocodiles go to the dentist.

Shel Silverstein's masterful collection of poems and drawings stretches the bounds of imagination and will be cherished by readers of all ages. This is a collection that belongs on everyone's bookshelf. Makes a great gift for special occasions such as holidays, birthdays, and graduation.

And don't miss Runny Babbit Returns, the new book by Shel Silverstein!

"An ideal book for teachers to have handy. If you want to ungloom your day, start Where the Sidewalk Ends." -- Reading Teacher.

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.
