I CANNOT wait to own this book! And here I was, just sitting around the other day, hoping against hope for some new Shel Silverstein.... When I became a school teacher (over 20 years ago) the first two books I bought for my class library were "A Light in the Attic" and "Where the Sidewalk Ends". They are tattered and some pages are thin, but I still lovingly share them with my students every year. This makes me so happy!

Product details 208 pages HarperCollins - English 9780061998164 Reviews:
"Publishers Weekly Review" by , "This posthumous collection of Silverstein's poems and illustrations is not only familiar in design, but chockfull of the whimsical humor, eccentric characters, childhood fantasies, and iconoclastic glee that his many fans adore. Like the boy who orders a hot dog 'with everything on it' (' came with a parrot, A bee in a bonnet, A wristwatch, a wrench, and a rake'), there are plenty of surprises in store for readers. Although a few poems feel a tad fragmentary, overall the volume includes some of Silverstein's strongest work, brilliantly capturing his versatility and topsy-turvy viewpoint. The poems take expectedly unexpected twists (Walenda the witch rides a vacuum cleaner); a few are gross ('Let's just say I took a dare,' reads 'Mistake,' as Silverstein shows a snake trailing out of a boy's pair of shorts, its tail still entering through his mouth), but many more display Silverstein's clever wordplay, appreciation of everyday events, and understated wisdom. 'There are no happy endings. Endings are the saddest part, So just give me a happy middle And a very happy start.' The silly-for-the-sake-of-silly verses are nicely balanced with sweetly contemplative offerings, including a poignant final poem that offers an invitation to readers: 'When I am gone what will you do? Who will write and draw for you? Someone smarter — someone new? Someone better — maybe YOU!' All ages. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
