Shel Silverstein

Shel Silverstein grew up in Chicago and didn't set out to write and draw for children. As he told Publishers Weekly in 1975, "When I was a kid...I would much rather have been a good baseball player or a hit with the girls. But I couldn't play ball, I couldn't dance...so I started to draw and write".

Besides writing children's books, Shel wrote cartoons and more for adults, played guitar, wrote and sang songs, and was an accomplished playwright. Shel's untimely death in 1999 did not mean the end of new works. Runny Babbit, finished before his death, was published in March 2005. Celebrate Poetry Month (April), by reading the second original book to be published since his passing, Every Thing On It: Poems and Drawings. It's a poetry collection including more than one hundred and thirty never-before-seen poems and drawings completed by this cherished American artist and selected by his family from his archives.
