Book #18
Book Title: Where the Sidewalk Ends (reread)
Author: Shel Silverstein
Category: ya fiction; humor; poetry
# of pages: 166
My rating of the book, F- [worst] to A [best].: B
Short description/summary of the book: (taken from 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. :)

Books read this year: 18/50.

Next read(s): I am about to start Blood Rites by Jim Butcher. I am still also reading Angels & Demons by Dan Brown & The Power of a Praying Wife by Stormie OMartian.
" don't know what you have got until it's gone. People change. The world changes. And sooner or later you lose people you care about. If you don't mind some advice from someone who doesn't know much about families. I can tell you this: Don't take yours for granted. It might feel like all of them will always be there. But they won't."
