Goodreads review • Where the Sidewalk Ends

Where the Sidewalk EndsWhere the Sidewalk Ends by Shel Silverstein
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

As a kid, I must’ve checked this book out at the library dozens of times. In Dutch of course. So being able to finally read it in English, makes it a less nostalgic trip than expected. Fortunately the poetry remains happily simplistic, engaging and humorous. And at times the combination of words and imagery does manage to trigger some form recognition, recreating some cherished memories.
