If you are a dreamer, come in,
If you are a dreamer,
A wisher, a liar,
A hope-er, a prayer,
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 where you wash your shadow and plant diamond gardens, where shoes fly, sisters are auctioned off, and crocodiles go to the dentist.
Shel Silverstein’s masterful collection of poems and drawings is hilarious and profound.
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, touching … or both. Some approach naughtiness or are a bit disgusting to squeamish grown-ups, but that’s what kids like best about Silverstein’s work. Jim Trelease, the author of The New Read-Aloud Handbook, calls this book “without question, the best-loved collection of poetry for children.” (Ages 4 to 10)
