Product description

Review

A genius ... his is an enduring influence ― The Times

Resonates beyond words ― Guardian

Wry, humorous ... his poems share the same anarchic spirit as Spike Milligan ― Independent

That rare adult who can still think like a child ― The New York Times

About the Author

Shel Silverstein's very first children's book Lafcadio, the Lion Who Shot Back was published in 1963, and followed the next year by two other books. The first of those, The Giving Tree, is a moving story about the love of a tree for a boy; it took four years before Harper Children's books decided to publish it. Shel returned to humour that same year with A Giraffe and a Half. His first collection of poems and drawings, Where the Sidewalk Ends, appeared in 1974, and his second, A Light in the Attic, in 1981. When he was a G.I. in Japan and Korea in the 1950, he learned to play the guitar and to write songs, including 'A Boy Named Sue' for Johnny Cash. In 1984, Silverstein won a Grammy Award for Best Children's Album for Where the Sidewalk Ends - 'recited, sung and shouted' by the author. He was also an accomplished playwright, including the 1981 hit, 'The Lady or the Tiger Show.' The last book to be published before he died in 1999, was Falling Up (1996).

5.0 out of 5 stars what a lovely book - so enjoyable to read
By Vishal Kapoor on 11 September 2020
A lovely book. So glad we bought it for our 29mo old. Although it's only black and white, she enjoys going thru the pages. Adults love to read it as well. It's a bittersweet story of a selfless giving tree and the relationship with a boy and how they "grow up" together...it's very sad and also depicts what man has done to nature :(

A lovely book. Highly recommend.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor quality - thin pages you can see through
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 21 July 2020
You can see the drawings from the other pages through each page - very poor quality. Not what I would expect from this book and I assume it's a poor run done recently by a different publisher than normal but unsure. I will be returning mine if I can.

In photo - the book on the top is a different publication purchased approximately 10 years ago. The book on the bottom is the one that I've just received. Size of book doesn't make much of a difference but the quality of the paper is very poor and the words and drawings from other pages can easily be seen through.
