I still love these poems after all these years. Who can fail to recall "Lazy Jane" when speaking or hearing about anyone lazy, or when it rains outside?
Or "What a Day" when you are "that kind of day"?
And can you ever use clean the bathroom without thinking of the delightful drawing that accompanied the lines:

"Teddy said it was hat
So I put it on
Now Daddy's saying
"Where the heck has the toilet plunger gone?"

Maybe I am just as silly as the book...

What a fantastic book! Sarah Cynthia Sylvia Stout... Ickle Me, Pickle Me, Tickle Me Too... I'm being eaten by a boa constrictor... so many memorable and wonderful poems that I remember from my childhood, that I now share with my young daughter. A timeless classic!

Every child should experience the genius of Shel Silverstein. His poems "speak" to children, and adults alike.

One of the best poetry books for children and may be adults too. I am 23 and I love it.

Beautiful gift copy. Shel Silverstein was one of my daughters favorite authors and she has collected all his books. 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 Silversteins world begins. Youll 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 Silversteins masterful collection of poems and drawings is at once outrageously funny and profound.
