Shel Silverstein’s incomparable career as a children’s book author and illustrator began with Lafcadio, the Lion Who Shot Back. In 1964, Shel’s creativity continued to flourish as four more books were published in the same year—Don’t Bump the Glump!, A Giraffe and a Half, Who Wants a Cheap Rhinoceros?, and the beloved classic The Giving Tree. Later he continued to build his remarkable body of work with Where the Sidewalk Ends, A Light in the Attic, Falling Up, Every Thing On It, The Missing Piece, The Missing Piece Meets the Big O, and Runny Babbit.
