Again, another outstanding book by Shel Silverstein, Including 12 New Poems!
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.
The book has many different poems about a wide variety of subjects. The poems describe a lot of everyday events with a funny twist. Shel Silverstein writes about taking out the garbage, jumping rope, and making a list.
Shel Silverstein's masterful collection of poems and drawings is at once outrageously funny and profound.
