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 . . . If you're a pretender, come sit by my fire For we have some flax-golden tales to spin. Come in! Come in! This Collectible Edition brings together two masterful collections of poems and drawing by Shel Silverstein that are at once outrageously funny and profound. In Where the Sidewalk Ends, you'll discover that 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 Sara 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. Every Thing On It is a book with . . .well, everything on it. It's an amazing collection of never-before-published poems and drawings from Shel Silverstein. You will say Hi-ho for the toilet troll, get tongue-tied with Stick-a-Tongue-Out-Sid, play a highly unusual horn, and experience the joys of growing down. Where the Sidewalk Ends/Every Thing On It is one of Barnes & Noble's Collectible Editions classics. Each volume features authoritative texts by the world's greatest authors in an exquisitely designed bonded-leather binding, with distinctive gilt edging and a ribbon bookmark. Decorative, durable, and collectible, these books offer hours of pleasure to readers young and old and are an indispensable cornerstone for every home library.

The poems in this book are so much fun to read, some are short, and some are long. They'll make you laugh and make you think, and maybe take a doubletake.
