Where the Sidewalk Ends by Shel Silverstein 


Hardcover with dust jacket.  Dust Jacket has some yellowing to edges, but is otherwise structurally sound and glossy.   Book itself looks and reads like new; pristine cloth cover and stark white pages.  *Inscription from original owner handwritten on flyleaf page. 

Where the sidewalk ends, Shel Silverstein's world begins. There 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 one of Parent & Child magazine's 100 Greatest Books for Kids. School Library Journal said, "Silverstein has an excellent sense of rhythm and rhyme and a good ear for alliteration and assonance that make these poems a pleasure to read aloud."
