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.
