Where the Sidewalk Ends 30th Anniversary Edition: Poems and Drawings
HarperCollins, Jan 20, 2004 - Juvenile Nonfiction - 192 pages
Including 12 New Poems!
If you are a dreamer, come in,
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.

Review: Where the Sidewalk Ends: Poems and DrawingsUser Review - Johara Almogbel - Goodreads
I am so glad I read this book after I wrote all of my current poems because I would feel like I was ripping off Shel Silverstein. As it is, very fun light book. The illustrations make it, to be honest. Some of the rhymes felt awkward to read but I think that's part of it's charm. Read full review

A delight to read from page to page. I had so much fun with it as a child, that I grew up with mythical reverence for this book. When I finally got my hands on it as an adult, it made me realize how the author inspired magic in my soul. Bless you and rest in peace, Mr. Silverstein. Read full review
