About the Author

Shel Silverstein is best known as a children’s book author who wrote and illustrated a number of bestselling books that have charmed millions of readers of all ages. Crossing many artistic boundaries, he was also a noted songwriter and an accomplished playwright. Silverstein first came to prominence in the 1950s as a cartoonist for Playboy, where he assumed the role of roving ambassador for the up-and-coming magazine. This esteemed assignment—due in no small part to his friendship with Hugh M. Hefner—was the auspicious beginning of a most amazing career. Shel Silverstein died in 1999.

Lisa Brown, June 30, 2011 (view all comments by Lisa Brown)
In case you can't tell from the subtitle, the beauty of the book is that it's a children's book for adults (or an adults' book for children (either way, it's hilariously inappropriate humor)). If you're familiar with Shel Silverstein's Dr. Demento/Playboy stuff, then you already know what's in store. If not, but you're a fan of Silverstein and Roald Dahl (especially his darker stuff), then you really can't go wrong with this.

This book had me laughing hysterically from cover to cover. A work of pure comic genius. This is the antidote to too much Elmo.
