Falling Up was praised by The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books, which said, “The enticing blend of wickedness, creativity, and rhythm makes the verse entertaining, readable, and often chantable.” And now this classic has twelve new, never-before-published poems added to this special edition.

This wondrous collection allows lets you wander through the Nose Garden, ride the Little Hoarse, and eat in the Strange Restaurant with poems and drawings that are both outrageously funny and profound.

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.
