ShelSilverstein.com bills itself as "the Official Site for Kids" but, if you're familiar with Sheldon Allan Silverstein's ecclectic career
, you don't have to be a kid to enjoy it. Shel was best known
for his books and poetry, but he was also a prolific songwriter
, working extensively with Dr. Hook & The Medicine Show [sorry, Tripod link]
. He also wrote Johnny Cash's hit "A Boy Named Sue
" and was posthumously inducted
into the Nashville Songwriters Hall Of Fame in 2002. More songs and stories here
. And his amazingly extensive Wikipedia page is here.
