About this item

Important Made in USA Origin Disclaimer: For certain items sold by Walmart on Walmart.com, the displayed country of origin information may not be accurate or consistent with manufacturer information. For updated, accurate country of origin data, it is recommended that you rely on product packaging or manufacturer information.

A boy who turns into a TV set and a girl who eats a whale are only two of the characters in a collection of humorous poetry illustrated with the author's own drawings.

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. This special edition has twelve extra poems that did not appear in the original collection.

Let me say that my family and I have a great sense of humor but... I can not imagine exposing a child to this book and I have to wonder about the author...I gave it one star only because this site does not allow NO stars. The first thing I read was a full page about how someone ate a baby and her things would have to be given away and how they would not have to wipe her nose any more or check to see if she was dry... Then there is the delightful little thing about a person not having anything to put in stew so they will cook themselves and not scream while they are being boiled..and it reminds you to enjoy them with crackers... There is the happy little mood-lifter about the Googies, who come to buy children....50 cents for the fat ones, thirty cents for the clean ones and so on.... Can't forget the kid who is grabbed by an eagle and "he dropped me in a boiling lake a thousand miles wide and you'll never guess what I did then--I DIED." Can not overlook the one about being eaten by a boa constrictor..

I remember reading this when I was a little girl.. My daughter is almost 7 and loves to read. She absolutely loves the silly stories and poems in this book. I'm constantly having to tell her to put it down! I would definately recommend this book to other parents.

I grew up reading these poems with my grandmother and I have such fond memories of many of them. I bought this book for my four year old daughter and have been reading it to her every night before bed. She already has favorites and enjoys the funny and quirky poetry. Definitely a great buy!
