My rating of the book, F- [worst] to A [best].: B
Short description/summary of the book: (taken from amazon.com): 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.
My Thoughts:I really enjoyed this book but I think I honestly appreciated it more when I was a child myself. However, I will definitely be giving my future children this book so that they can enjoy it as much as I used to. :)
