Millie McDeevit screamed a scream
So loud it made her eyebrows steam.
She screamed so loud
Her jawbone broke,
Her tongue caught fire,
Her nostrils smoked...

Poor Screamin' Millie is just one of the unforgettable characters in this wondrous new book of poems and drawings by the creator of Where the Sidewalk Ends and A Light in the Attic. Here you will also meet Allison Beals and her twenty-five eels; Danny O'Dare, the dancin' bear; the Human Balloon; and Headphone Harold.

So come, wander through the Nose Garden, ride the Little Hoarse, eat in the Strange Restaurant, and let the magic of Shel Silverstein open your eyes and tickle your mind.

Shel Silverstein combined his unique imagination and bold brand of humor for his first poetry collection—the only one he illustrated in full color. Now available again after three decades, don't bump the glump! and Other Fantasies was originally published in 1964, the same year as his most famous picture book, the giving tree.

From Our Editors

Join Mr. Mud and the Creepin' Crud, Drooler and Belchin' Bob in this ridiculous follow-up to Where the Sidewalk Ends and A Light in the Attic. The wonderfully irreverent poems are back with a vengeance and kids are gonna love 'em! Shel Silverstein turns his legendary phrases in more than 100 more poems accompanied by his hilariously distinctive pictures. Kids and adults alike will split their sides when they read about the short 10-year-old who grows another foot - on top of his head; the terrified girl who thinks there's a mouse in her hair - it's only an elephant; and the many other strange and wonderful characters who pepper the pages.
