Where the Sidewalk Ends: Poems & Drawings
Where the sidewalk ends, Shel Silverstein’s world begins. Celebrate the 40th anniversary of Where the Sidewalk Ends, the classic poetry collection that is both outrageously funny and profound. This book features twelve poems that were not in the original edition.
In Where the Sidewalk Ends, 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.”
