The Shel Silverstein Collection

Falling Up
Meet Allison Beals and her twenty-five eels; Danny O'Dare, the dancin' bear; the Human Balloon; and Headphone Harold.

Where the Sidewalk Ends: Poems and Drawings
There's a boy who turns into a TV set, and a girl who eats a whale. It is a place where you wash your shadow and plant diamond gardens, and crocodiles go to the dentist.

Light in the Attic
In Shel Silverstein's attic you'll find Backward Bill, Sour Face Ann, the Meehoo with an Exactlywatt, and the Polar Bear in the Frigidaire.

Giving Tree
Shel Silverstein gives us an affecting interpretation of the gift of giving and a serene acceptance of another's capacity to love in return.

Giraffe and a Half
Delightfully zany rhymes about a giraffe who accumulates some ridiculous things--like glue on his shoe and a bee on his knee--only to lose them again, one by one.

The Missing Piece
A missing piece sets off in search of its rightful place.

The Missing Piece Meets the Big O
The wedge-shaped hero of The Missing Piece waits in vain for the right someone to appear, until a complete circle (the Big O) shows it how to gather its own momentum.

Lafcadio, the Lion Who Shot Back
A lion takes aim at the hunter.

Who Wants a Cheap Rhinoceros?
It seems that there is this rhinoceros for sale ... cheap ... and there are any number of unusual but practical advantages to having one.
