Where the Sidewalk Ends turns forty! Celebrate with this anniversary edition that features an eye-catching commemorative red sticker. This classic poetry collection, which is both outrageously funny and profound, has been the most beloved of Shel Silverstein's poetry books for generations.

Where the sidewalk ends, Shel Silverstein's world begins. There 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 one of Parent & Child magazine's 100 Greatest Books for Kids. School Library Journal said, "Silverstein has an excellent sense of rhythm and rhyme and a good ear for alliteration and assonance that make these poems a pleasure to read aloud."

Shel Silverstein's incomparable career as a children's book author and illustrator began with Lafcadio, the Lion Who Shot Back. In 1964, Shel's creativity continued to flourish as four more books were published in the same year—Don't Bump the Glump!, A Giraffe and a Half, Who Wants a Cheap Rhinoceros?, and the beloved classic The Giving Tree. Later he continued to build his remarkable body of work with Where the Sidewalk Ends, A Light in the Attic, Falling Up, Every Thing On It, The Missing Piece, The Missing Piece Meets the Big O, and Runny Babbit.

Supports the Common Core State Standards.

Shel Silverstein shook the staid world of children's poetry in 1974 with the publication of this collection, and things haven't been the same since. More than four and a half million copies of Where the Sidewalk Ends have been sold, making it the bestselling children's poetry book ever. With this and his other poetry collections (A Light in the Attic and Falling Up), Silverstein reveals his genius for reaching kids with silly words and simple pen-and-ink drawings. What child can resist a poem called "Dancing Pants" or "The Dirtiest Man in the World"? Each of the 130 poems is funny in a different way, or touching ... or both. Some approach naughtiness or are a bit disgusting to squeamish grown-ups, but that's exactly what kids like best about Silverstein's work. Jim Trelease, author of The New Read-Aloud Handbook, calls this book "without question, the best-loved collection of poetry for children." (Ages 4 to 10)


A boy who turns into a TV set and a girl who eats a whale are only two of the characters in a collection of humorous poetry illustrated with the author's own drawings.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Come meet Sarah Cynthia Sylvia Stout... 16. November 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Would you like to meet Sarah Cynthia Sylvia Stout who would not take the garbage out? Or Dirty Dan, the world's dirtiest man? Accept Shel Silverstein's invitation to come inside his delightful book full of outrageous poems and drawings. The unpredictable and humorous actions of each crazy character grabs readers' attention, keeping them engrossed in each poem, and craving for more. Elementary school-aged children will fall over laughing at Peggy Ann McKay's desperate attempt to avoid school, claiming, "I have the measles and the mumps, a gash, a rash, and purple bumps. My mouth is wet, my throat is dry, I'm going blind in my right eye." Silverstein's use of rhyme and nonsense verse combined with his constant humor captures the reader. His simple pen-and-ink drawings add to the imagery presented in each poem. The reader not only sees, but feels lazy Jane's dry mouth as she waits for it to rain. The application of alliteration, assonance, and consonance makes each poem a delight to read out loud; "For I've been down to the edge of the world, sat on the edge where the wild wind whirled." Some poems not only depict an array of humorous characters, but also create touching moments and offers good advice. Silverstein suggests playing hug o' war, rather than tug o' war, and assures young readers that, "Anything can happen, child, ANYTHING can be." Children ages nine to twelve will enjoy reading these well crafted poems that portray both ludicrous and poignant messages.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Light-hearted, cute and a lot of fun. 17. September 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Funny nonsense poems and drawings. Early and middle elementary aged school children should enjoy the crazy, silly humor of Shel Silverstein's poems, and simple black and white line drawings. He makes reference, in his poems, to other well known tales and stories, such as: a Noah's Arc with no unicorns, Paul Bunyan, who visits heaven, then hell, and "The Little Engine That Could," that can't. There is a variety of long and short works. Often the two page, longer pieces, are my preference. I especially enjoy: Smart (p.35), Hector the Collector (p.46-7), Sick (p.58-9), The Crocodile's Toothache (p.66), Sarah (p.70-71), Cynthia Sylvia Stout Would Not Take The Garbage Out (p.76-7), The Unicorn (p.76-7), No Difference (p.81), The Dirtiest Man In The World (p.96-7), Spaghetti (p.100), Eighteen Flavors (p.116), With His Mouth Full Of Food (p.128), Band-Aids (p.140), If The World Was Crazy (p.146), Just Me Just Me (p.152), Hungry Mungry (p.160-1), and Merry (p.164). It is a good collection of poems and drawings, although I might enjoy some of Silverstein's later works even more. "A Light In The Attic," (1981), and "Falling Up," (1996), take a similar format. Check them out!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Delightful, nonsensical poetry for ages 2-102 11. Mai 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I was intrduced to "Where The Sidewalk Ends" by my second grade reading teacher in the fall of 1978. The author, Shel Silverstein, had an incredible gift. He could make kids fans of poetry! (One of those kids happened to be my 38 year-old father). From the moment I opened the book and recited "Sick" for the very first time, I fell in love with Mr. Silverstein's books.
My brilliant teacher had each member of the class perform a poem from "Where The Sidewalk Ends". He made lovers of poetry of us all, and an actress out of me. For years to come, I won numerous talent contests performing "Sick" for audiences of all ages.
I love each and every poem in this book. Everybody who loves to laugh MUST read "Ma and God", "Sarah Cynthia Sylvia Stout Would Not Take the Garbage Out", "The Dirtiest Man In the World", and "Sick", my all-time favorite.
"Where the Sidewalk Ends" and Shel Silverstein changed my life forever. It was today, May 10, 1999, that I read he had passed away. The world has lost an amazing contributer to children's literature. "Where the Sidewalk Ends" and all of Mr. Silverstein's other books are the delightful legacy that he has left behind. I encourage children and parents alike to open this book and let the laughter in.
"For the Children, they mark,and the children, they know
The place where the sidewalk ends."

5.0 von 5 Sternen got my daughter reading 12. Mai 2000
Von S. Healy
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Shel Silverstein has done a wonderful thing with this book. He inspires children to read. My 3rd grade daughter was not too keen on sitting down to read a book, until she found this one in the library. She will sit down for hours now and read and reread all of the poems. Her favoriate is "Sick" the story of a little girl with every ailment you can think of - until she finds out it is Saturday. The poems are things that kids can relate to - and they are an easy and quick read. I recommend this book to everyone, but especially to those who are trying to inspire their young children with a love of reading

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Great Book To Remember! 8. August 1997
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I read this book back in 1980 when I was 11 yrs old. I have never forgotten the way it made me laugh and always cheered me up. My personal favorite as a child was "Sick". "I am too sick to go to school today..." I read that one and several others over and over again.

I was an abused child and the book brought something into my daily existence that I sorely needed. Laughter! I would highly recommend this book to anyone (as matter of fact I recommended it to the reading group at [...] Not only will children find the poems and drawings to be of great amusement, but adults will remember the things in their childhood that brought a smile to their face as well!

I plan on buying this book for my children as well as the other Silverstein books. They are all excellent!
