Shel Silversteinby Michael Gray Baughan, Kyle Zimmer (Foreword by)
Shel Silverstein was a songwriter, playwright, and cartoonist, but he is best known for his poetry and books for children, including The Giving Tree and A Light in the Attic. Always thought provoking and sometimes controversial, Silverstein's writing was accompanied by his distinctive art, making his books memorable and appealing to children and adults alike. Silverstein did not start out as a children's book writer. He first pursued many other avenues, all while living a fascinating and unusual lifestyle. Shel Silverstein tells his story, from his childhood in Chicago through his development and success as an artist and a writer. Much like Silverstein's own work, his tale is both amusing and inspiring.
