Shel Silverstein wrote ‘A Boy named Sue’ for Johnny Cash but is known throughout the USA as a poet who writes like a hybrid of Spike Milligan and Edward Lear. His poems have amused American children for many years. The poems in this anthology only make sense if you’re open to thinking outside the ‘box’.

Description

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.
