Where the Sidewalk EndsSummary Where the Sidewalk Ends:

“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.” ~ http://andrewluckbookclub.com/book/where-the-sidewalk-ends/

  1. Shel Silverstein’s books are all good but I think “Where the Sidewalk Ends” is one of the best. What a wonderful book to start the summer;-)
