If the Shel Silverstein book Where the Sidewalk Ends isn't already in every child's hands, it should be; it's as poignant and whimsical as the day it was written. The album version is another matter. Silverstein already had plenty of experience in the recording studio, and his musical delivery of his poems is certainly unique. He sounds a little like Emo Phillips reading verse, which is about as unsettling as one might imagine. Children may enjoy this, but the adults who have to listen to it over and over with them will just be spooked. Still, this album is sure to have fans who treasure it for its disquietingly offbeat delivery. ~ Paul Collins

display_descriptionA 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. Come in - for where the sidewalk ends, Shel Silverstein's world begins. 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.
