I Know This Much Is True: A Novel (P.S.)

I Know This Much Is True

Poetry by Shel Silverstein 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.

Just read this entire book in the airport while my flight was delayed. Made me laugh out loud so much I'm sure people around me thought I was off my rocker. :-)
