Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Shel Silverstein shook the staid world of children's poetry in 1974 with the publication of this collection, and things haven't been the same since. More than four and a half million copies of Where the Sidewalk Ends have been sold, making it the bestselling children's poetry book ever. With this and his other poetry collections (A Light in the Attic and Falling Up), Silverstein reveals his genius for reaching kids with silly words and simple pen-and-ink drawings. What child can resist a poem called "Dancing Pants" or "The Dirtiest Man in the World"? Each of the 130 poems is funny in a different way, or touching ... or both. Some approach naughtiness or are a bit disgusting to squeamish grown-ups, but that's exactly what kids like best about Silverstein's work. Jim Trelease, author of The New Read-Aloud Handbook, calls this book "without question, the best-loved collection of poetry for children." (Ages 4 to 10) --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

Review

“An ideal book for teachers to have handy. If you want to ungloom your day, start Where the Sidewalk Ends.” (Reading Teacher.)

“A zesty collection of humorous light verse.” (SLJ.)

“These rhymes are perfect bite-sized nuggets of jest.” (Brightly) --This text refers to the library edition.
