Where the Sidewalk Ends: Poems and Drawings (Hardcover)
Where the Sidewalk Ends turns forty! To celebrate this anniversary of Shel Silverstein's outrageous and profound classic poetry collection, the jacket features an eye-catching commemorative red sticker. This special edition, with twelve extra poems, was first published in 2004 and is a timeless bestseller.
Where the sidewalk ends, Shel Silverstein's world begins. There 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 is one of Parent & Child magazine's 100 Greatest Books for Kids.School Library Journal said, "Silverstein has an excellent sense of rhythm and rhyme and a good ear for alliteration and assonance that make these poems a pleasure to read aloud."
Shel Silverstein's incomparable career as a children's book author and illustrator began withLafcadio, the Lion Who Shot Back. In 1964, Shel's creativity continued to flourish as four more books were published in the same yearDon't Bump the Glump!,A Giraffe and a Half, Who Wants a Cheap Rhinoceros?, and the beloved classicThe Giving Tree. Later he continued to build his remarkable body of work withWhere the Sidewalk Ends, A Light in the Attic, Falling Up,Every Thing On It, The Missing Piece, The Missing Piece Meets the Big O, andRunny Babbit.
