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.

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!

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."

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

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!

When I was a child in the '70s, money was tight for our family. I checked this book out of the library so many times, that the librarian in our small town bought me a copy. I still have it. Now, money is not so tight. I buy a copy for every child I know. It is my own small children's favorite book. They have their favorites (Spaghetti & Listen to the Mustn'ts) and can recite them by heart. I would like to thank Mr. Silverstein for bringing happiness to my childhood, as well as creating stories that lay the foundation for some of the the most beautiful moments I share with my children. The stories are silly (Dancing Pants), as well as thought-provoking (Colors). I recommend it to anyone, and everyone. Jennifer Lujano

My only hope is that Shel Silverstein will one day be given his full credit as one of the most important poets of our (or any) time. To say that he was a mere 'childrens' poet wouldn't do the man credit. I won't go into his history, you can do that yourselves.
"Where the Sidewalk Ends" is a perfect example of poetry done right. Sometimes it rhymes, sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes it's funny, sometimes it's not. But, just like Dr. Suess' books, we go back long after our 'childhood' has ended. We want to relive our childhood. There aren't enough kind words in my vocabulary to recommend this (or any of his other books) highly enough.

I found this book by accident in a Florida airport. I knew Shel for his HUNGRY MUNGRY poem, so I had to buy the book for my daughter. It has given us all, me in particular, many happy hours. His sense of humour is our sense of humour. None of his books are available in Britain, despite a wide search, but we managed to obtain Lafcadio, The Giving Tree, Missing Piece, and Light in the Attic....all giving us a wonderful escape into fantasy but with an insistence that we look at ourselves more deeply. Keep writing Shel, and send your books over here please so we can buy more!

I was an avid Shel Silverstein reader as a child; and this book was always my favorite. I was so surprized when I came home one day and my step-brother had taken this book out of library and hid it under his bed because he did not want to bring it back. For someone who would never sit down and read a whole story, this was the first book that he wanted to read again and again. Where the Sidewalk Ends not only appeals to the new generation of readers; but it also touches something in the hearts of those who have loved the simple, humorous side of life through the years.

I am an elementary school first grade teacher and every day for 30 minutes I read poems from Where The Sidewalk Ends. My school children love it and have a chance to relax and help recite the poems with me. They especially love Ickle Me Pickle Me Tickle Me Too! Thanks Shel Silverstein, I hope you have inspired many of my students to become authors and illustrators just like you !!! I especially love your poem from Falling Up called, Snowball... Sincerely,
Mrs. Delaney Stilwell and Class
Taylor Elementary School
Foxboro, Massachusetts
