If you are a dreamer, come in,
If you are a dreamer,
A wisher, a liar,
A hope-er, a pray-er,
A magic bean buyer . . .
Come in . . . for where the sidewalk ends, Shel Silverstein's world begins. 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 at once outrageously funny and profound. This special edition has twelve extra poems that did not appear in the original collection.--This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
Shel Silverstein 's incomparable career as a bestselling children's book author and illustrator began with Lafcadio, the Lion Who Shot Back. He is also the creator of picture books including A Giraffe and a Half, Who Wants a Cheap Rhinoceros?, The Missing Piece, The Missing Piece Meets the Big O, and the perennial favorite The Giving Tree, as well as classic poetry collections such as Where the Sidewalk Ends, A Light in the Attic, Every Thing On It, Don't Bump the Glump!, and Runny Babbit.
Classic book of poems that I had in the 1980's as a child and now my children are enjoying!! Beginning to end this book rocks! My boys laugh so hard at some of the poems. Read morePublished 2 days ago by Jenn Loves Morrissey!
What can I say. I am super elated that we bought this book. My son and I have been reading it for months. The poems are funny, a little silly and have meanings if you think a bit. Read morePublished 2 days ago by Smiling Buddha
This is absolutely my favorite. We read it to our son when he was little and he also, buys it now as a baby present. It is fun to read and interact with your child.
Loved this book when I was a kid. My friend was very excited to receive it as a baby shower gift. (She asked for books instead of cards)Published 7 days ago by Shannon T
I think second graders study poetry. My grandson is having a blast with this. (He already has a passed-down copy of "A Light in the Attic.")Published 8 days ago by PayingC
