New Silverstein to Be Released

every thing on it.jpgTo your left is the cover of Every Thing on It, the new collection of poems and drawings by the late Shel Silverstein. Slated for release in September, the contents were selected by family members. Raised in Chicago, Falling Up was Silverstein's last publication before his death in 1999; the book was followed by Runny Babbit released posthumously in 2005. The new book will undoubtedly be a welcome addition to all of us who fondly remember pouring over (and sometimes coloring in) all of Silverstein's engaging collections. (via)
