If you’re a dreamer, are available,
If you’re 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 be able to 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 is not going to take the rubbish out. This can be a place where you wash your shadow and plant diamond gardens, a spot where shoes fly, sisters are auctioned off, and crocodiles go to the dentist.
Shel Silverstein’s masterful number of poems and drawings is without delay outrageously funny and profound.
