the Sidewalk Ends
By Shel Silverstein
What a wonderful imagination
the late, great, Shel Silverstein displayed in his classic Where
the Sidewalk Ends. It is now available in a beautiful 30th Anniversary
edition with twelve new poems, to be treasured by kids and adults
of all ages. I loved it when I read it to my children, and this
edition is just in time to read to grandchildren. There is my old
favorite: "Ickle Me, Pickle Me, Tickle Me Too" and my
children's favorite "Sick," about the little girl who
was too ill to go to school, until she realized it was Saturday!
Shel was a very talented writer and cartoonist,
and he maximized both these talents in this very special poetry
collection for children, guaranteed to make the children in your
life laugh and beg for more. You'll never look at a peanut butter
sandwich the same again. You will meet unicorns, Hector the Collector,
eighty pound rats...and Googies who pay fifty cents for fat children.
This book is a great gift
idea for that special child you know...use it to read aloud for
family time or bedtime. Be prepared to read "just one more"
outrageously funny poem before lights out.
