Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With twelve never-before-published poems and drawings, here is a special edition of this beloved poetry collection. Now there is even more to love in this timeless fan favorite.

Millie McDeevit screamed a scream
So loud it made her eyebrows steam.
She screamed so loud
her jawbone broke,
Her tongue caught fire,
her nostrils smoked. . . .

Poor Screamin' Millie is just one of the unforgettable characters in this wondrous book of poems and drawings by the creator of Where the Sidewalk Ends, A Light in the Attic, and Every Thing On It. Here you will also meet Allison Beals and her twenty-five eels; Danny O'Dare, the dancin' bear; the Human Balloon; and Headphone Harold.

So come, wander through the Nose Garden, ride the Little Hoarse, eat in the Strange Restaurant, and let the magic of Shel Silverstein open your eyes and tickle your mind.

Synopsis:

Let the magic of Falling Up open your eyes and tickle your mind! With twelve additional never-before-published poems, here is a special edition of this beloved poetry collection.

Within the pages of Falling Up, you'll meet Allison Beals and her twenty-five eels; Danny O'Dare, the dancin' bear; the Human Balloon; Headphone Harold; and more unforgettable characters. This wondrous collection lets you wander through the Nose Garden, ride the Little Hoarse, and eat in the Strange Restaurant, with poems and drawings that are both outrageously funny and profound. The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books said of Falling Up, "An enticing blend of wickedness, creativity, and rhythm makes the verse entertaining, readable, and often chantable."
