Where The Sidewalk Ends: The Poems and Drawings of Shel Silverstein

For one of my 2013 Reading Challenges, Reading Outside the Box, I chose this category: It’s my Birthday! So, have a party! Read a book that was published in either your birth month or birth year! And for my birth year, 1974, one of my favorite authors Shel Silverstein published one of his most popular books, Where the Sidewalk Ends. So, I read it. It was a fun, silly book of poems. The poems are silly and catchy. Some of my favorites are: Sick, a poem about a little girl who swears she is sick with all sorts of ailments as she is trying to get out of going to school but in the end, it is Saturday! And she recovers very quickly indeed–silly girl; Hug O’ War, Because, I absolutely love hugs!; and, Spaghetti, Because it is silly and messy fun; and Lazy Jane, This book is definitely fun and I can see why it is so very popular! I would definitely recommend Where The Sidewalk Ends: The Poems and Drawings of Shel...

The Bird King by Shaun Tan

Feb 04

The Bird King by Shaun Tan I am a fan of Shaun Tan’s work. He creates these beautiful stories with no words, just pictures. They say more than words could say. So, when I saw his new book, The Bird King, I knew I had to read it. In this book he shares his sketches, his unfinished work, his unpublished work–he shares pieces of his sketchbook and thought processes. I think the following quote from the author sums it up, One of the joys of drawing is that meaning can be constantly postponed, and there is no real pressure to “say” anything special when working privately in a sketchbook. This book lefts so much unsaid. It leaves us to feel, think and find our own version of the story beginning (or ending). These are some of my favorite sketches, they really moved me for various reasons: This last one is my favorite. I think so much of it tells a story I am familiar with intimately. I love it. This book is well worth the...
