More About the Author

"And now, children, your Uncle Shelby is going to tell you a story about a very strange lion- in fact, the strangest lion I have ever met." So begins Shel Silverstein's very first children's book, Lafcadio, the Lion Who Shot Back. It's funny and sad and has made readers laugh and think since it was published in 1963. It was followed the next year by three more books. The first of them, The Giving Tree, is a moving story about the love of a tree for a boy. Shel returned to humor the same year with A Giraffe and a Half, delighting readers with a most riotous ending. The third book in 1964 was Uncle Shelby's Zoo Don't Bump the Glump! and Other Fantasies, Shel's first poetry collection, and his first and only book illustrated in full color. It combined his unique imagination and bold brand of humor in this collection of silly and scary creatures. Shel's second collection of poems and drawings, Where the Sidewalk Ends, was published in 1974. His recording of the poems won him a Grammy for best Children's Album. In this collection, Shel invited children to dream and dare to imagine the impossible, from a hippopotamus sandwich to the longest nose in the world. With his next collection of poems and drawings, A Light in the Attic, published in 1981, Shel asked his readers to turn the light on in their attics, to put something silly in the world, and not to be discouraged by the Whatifs. Instead he urged readers to catch the moon or invite a dinosaur to dinner- to have fun! A Light in the Attic was the first children's book to break onto the New York Times Bestseller List, where it stayed for a record-breaking 182 weeks. The last book that was published before his death in 1999 was Falling Up (1996). Like his other books, it is filled with unforgettable characters. Shel Silverstein's legacy continued with the release of a new work,Runny Babbit, the first posthumous publication conceived and completed before his death and released in March 2005. Witty and wondrous, Runny Babbit is a poetry collection of simple spoonerismsH, which twist the tongue and tease the mind. Don't Bump the Glump! And Other Fantasies was recently reissued in 2008 after being unavailable for over 30 years. Shel was always a believer in letting his work do the talking for him--few authors have ever done it better.

I love this book! This book is the story of all the things that a parent provides for their child: love, attention, and comfort. The tree is the "parent" and gives to the child all that it can, until it has no more to give and what a parent expects in return...the child's happiness, in order to be happy.

A delightful fable of a boy and a tree growing up - and
growing old together. Many parallels can be drawn from
parental approaches, to environmental concerns. It's a
story that teaches the value of unconditional love, and
profound respect. An interesting essay on mankind, Silverstien
skillfully incorporates material need and emotional
stability into the text in an easy-to-understand and
child-like manner. And what's more; it's the best (and most important)
children's story that I've ever read!

I bought this for my 5 year old brother after hearing great things about it. I had looked at in the the store one time but thought that maybe it was just too plain and simple. Turns out that my brother loves it! The moral of the story is so humane; it teaches us to give without expecting anything in return. I think this book teaches a very valuable lesson. I bought in in spanish since we are trying to raise my brother bilingual, and now I know it was a great purchase and highly recommend it!!

Amo este libro, enseña una leccion muy importante de la vida de dar sin esperar que recibas algo de regreso. Es algo que todos todavia nos cuesta aprender pero es que es muy importante pasar a nuestros niños. Es muy lindo y a mi hermano de 5 años le encanta! Esta fue una super compra, y me alegra mucho de haber escojido este libro. Se lo recomiendo a todos!

I believe that Mr. Silverstein had a Divine Intervention while his creative jucies were flowing (or he got lucky). Simply put...this is the best book ever written. It is a prized posession. They should come out with an anniversary special edition (hardback or something

The giving tree was my favorite book as a child. No other story that I have read since has created for me that same magic. I belive that this book is one that every child should own.

This is probably one of my favorite books of all time! This has the exact significance in Spanish as it does in English. The book is high quality and I would buy it again for my son. It has a great lesson about nature and I think that's important for children (everyone).

This is one of my favorite children's books. Sweet and a little sad. I'm an intermediate Spanish speaker and this book is great for learners. We also own the English version, so it is nice to see how it translates from one language to the other.
