New Shel Silverstein Audio Book

underwater land.jpgCory Doctorow reports that a new CD of Shel Silverstein poetry and music is being released. His take on the new material? "[T]his is some seriously awesome kids' music, full of Silverstein's flawless, legendary rhyme, his wicked humor, and some damned fine music and playing beneath it. It's fast, witty, and full of jokes that work on levels that can be appreciated by pre-verbal kids, and by adults, who will appreciate the snatches of extremely grown-up jokes woven into the whimsy."
