I LOVE THIS BOOK! In my opinion, no kid in the entire universe should be deprived of the chance to read Shel Silverstein's books of funny poetry. Falling Up and Where the Sidewalk Ends are one of my many personal favorites of all books in the world. They are a must read for any age; young or old.

"Review" by , "A zesty collection of humorous light verse."
"Synopsis" by ,

Join nine-year-oldand#160;Catfish Sam as he captures a day of adventure in his netand#8212;and in verse and#8212; in this unique middle grade novel told through poems and comic illustrations.

"Synopsis" by ,
If you are a dreamer, come in,
If you are a dreamer,
A wisher, a liar,
A hope-er, a pray-er,
A magic bean buyer...

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.

"Synopsis" by , Nine-year-old Sam loves fishing with his dad. So when his pesky little sister, Lucy, horns in on their fishing trip, heand#8217;s none too pleased: and#8220;Whereand#8217;s my stringer? / Somethingand#8217;s wrong! / The princess doll does not belong!and#8221; All ends well in this winsome book of poemsand#8212;each labeled with its proper poetic form, from quatrain to tercet. Together the poems build a dawn-to-dusk story of a father-son bond, of sibling harmony lost and foundand#8212;and most of all, of delicious anticipation. Charming line drawings animate the poetry with humor and drama, and the extensive Poetand#8217;s Tackle Box at the end makes this the perfect primer to hook aspiring poets of all ages.
