    The Man

    Shel is the man. He was a great artist and poet. I loved his songs that Dr. Hook and others did. They always had some humor in them. I also loved his children’s and adult books. Yes even though he is most famous for his children books I found out several years ago from a guy I...

    Genius

    I grew up listening to the wonderful songs he wrote for Doctor Hook. I`m only 20, but I bought a copy of an album call ``Bankrupt``at a charity shop when I was only 8, just because the guys on the cover looked so freaky. I still play that album all the time, although I own it on...

    His poems make me happy.

    It's that simple, and yet so rare. I've loved them since I found Where The Sidewalk Ends in Books'a'Million at age eight. That book remains on my special shelf in the basement where I can read it any time I want.

    “There is a place where the sidewalk ends And

    before the street begins, And there the grass grows soft and white, And there the sun burns crimson bright, And there the moon-bird rests from his flight To cool in the peppermint wind. Let us leave this place where the smoke blows black And the dark street winds and bends...

    I first read Shel Silverstein's books back

    when I was only 11 years old & I still read them today. Back then, I had a teacher who got me in to his books. I liked his poetry books Where The Sidewalk Ends, A Light In The Attic, and Falling Up, the best. I also like The Giving Tree. My favourite book by Shel Silverstein...

    My Favorite, "The Yipiyuk"

    In the swamplands long ago, Where the weeds and mudglumps grow, A Yipiyuk bit upon my toe… Exactly why I do not know. I kicked and cried I hollered “Oh”— The Yipiyuk would not let go. I whispered to him soft and low— The Yipiyuk would not...
