Enter the world of Shel Silverstein...

To celebrate the 25th anniversary of Shel Silverstein's most popular book, Where the Sidewalk Ends is now available in a special edition containing the classic hardcover book and a CD of highlights from his Grammy Award-winning album. This is a wonderful gift and keepsake for Shel Silverstein fans, old and new.

From the outrageously funny to the quietly affecting — and touching on everything in between — here are poems and drawings that illuminate the remarkable world of the well-known folksinger, humorist and creator of The Giving Tree.

Review:

"An ideal book for teachers to have handy....If you want to ungloom your day, start Where the Sidewalk Ends." Reading Teacher

Review:

"A zesty collection of humorous light verse." SLJ

Synopsis:

Antoine de Saint-Exupand#233;ry's classic story, beloved by readers of all ages for 70 years, now available in an anniversary edition gift setand#8212;with hardcover book and complete, unabridged text on both CD and exclusive downloadable audio read by Viggo Mortensen!

Synopsis:

"One sees clearly only with the heart. Anything essential is invisible to the eyes."

Few books have been as universally cherished as The Little Prince, the haunting, lyrical fable that explores the very meaning of life. This deluxe seventieth anniversary gift set includes a hardcover book with the original full-color illustrations, along with two audio CDs (and exclusive download) of the unabridged text, narrated by Academy Award nominee Viggo Mortensen, beloved for his role as Aragorn in The Lord of the Rings trilogy. Rediscover the beloved story that begins with a simple picture and blossoms into a spellbinding adventure.

This title has been selected as a Common Core Text Exemplar (Grades 4-5, Stories).

Synopsis:

In the vein of Shel Silverstein and Jack Prelutsky, this illustrated book of humorous poems will guarantee giggles

Artist, poet, and award-winning author Douglas Florian successfully captures the comedy of kids everyday lives with this jam-packed volume of 170 nonsense poems. Meander through the different aisles—such as “Jests and Jives” or “Tons of Puns”—to find everything from laugh-out-loud limericks to frenetic free verse. With Florians eccentric wit and off-the-wall drawings, this one-stop funny poetry shop is perfect for fans of Where the Sidewalk Ends.
