Overview

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!
