A brand-new Shel Silverstein book!

Wait a minute--didn't he leave us some time ago?  Not to fear.  His family selected from his archives & Everything On It: Poems & Drawings by Shel Silverstein, was released just last week, on Sept. 20, 2011.  This poetry collection includes more than one hundred and thirty never-before-seen poems and drawings. The second original book published since Silverstein's passing in 1999 (Runny Babbit was completed prior to the poet's death in 1999, and published in 2005), this collection follows the tradition and format of his previous poetry classics.

Now a new generation of readers & listeners will be encouraged to dream & imagine the impossible--where does a sidewalk end?  And a previous generation can share the poetry & characters of memorable delight.  This book does not disappoint--the cover format even continues the tradition--and carries on the magic that still is Shel Silverstein.  If you have all the other titles in your collection, you will want this one as well, imho.
