where the sidewalk ends appreciation thread

Recommended Posts

a client is insiting i try and make shel silverstein style drawings of her dogs. this is a monumental pain in the ass, but thats not the point. the point is that she gave me a copy of this book for reference. i hadnt really read it since i was a kid, although i do own a copy. i've been slipping. this thing is fucking amazing. if you havent read it in a while, go steal the copy from your parents book shelf. fucking owns.

That book is awesome. I read it to my kids all the time. Light House in the Attic and Where the Sidewalk Ends are both great books to...

 

"Little Sally Stout wouldn't take the garbage out..."

 

or something like that.
