Where the Sidewalk Ends
BY Shel Silverstein
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.” –Goodreads
I feel that Shel Silverstein was a requirement for any child’s library. Occasionally I would just flip through the book to look at the pictures. I remember that a few of those illustrations disturbed me, but the poems were funny.
