Overview

Different Dances 25th Anniversary Edition by Shel Silverstein

Startling, irreverent and provocative, the incomparable creator of poems and fables for children turns his eye and pen upon the social calamities and absurdities of the adult world.

a modern
ballet
where
lovers are ground
to hamburger
wives are turned into chairs
TV sets eat people
flowers grow from
children's heads
God is uncovered — and
re-covered
and men are hung
by the instrument
of their desire

And don't miss Runny Babbit Returns, the new book from Shel Silverstein!

Shel is probably better known by most for his drawings and poems that make you laugh. He also had a more serious side in his drawings that would make you laugh at first, but then you stop and THINK! His subject matter runs the gamut of lifes experiances and will make you look at many of them in a new way, quite often being forced to look at many of your own pre-conceived notions about life and to reconsider opinions you've held near and dear.
