From the Back Cover
If you are a dreamer, come in,
If you are a dreamer,
A wisher, a liar,
A hope-er, a pray-er,
A magic bean buyer . . .
Come in . . . for where the sidewalk ends, Shel Silverstein's world begins. You'll meet a boy who turns into a TV set, and a girl who eats a whale. 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.
Shel Silverstein's masterful collection of poems and drawings is at once outrageously funny and profound. This special edition has twelve extra poems that did not appear in the original collection.

I bought it second hand and it said cover was in good condition.
Was a bit disappointed that the front cover (showing the picture) was not on the book.
However, the nice surprise was that the black hardback cover was signed by Shel Silverstein, so swings and roundabouts as they say :0)
Kids will love this and adults will love reading it to their kids and the illustrations are lovely

My 5yo's review: "this book is so funny! I like the Captain Hook one! And Ickle Me Pickle Me Tickle Me Too! Hug o War instead of Tug o War made me happy."
