A new collection of never-before-seen poems and drawings by Shel Silverstein will be released in September. The book is titled “Every Thing on It,” and this week publisher HarperCollins Children’s Books released the image of the cover.
The poems and drawings in the book were selected by family members from his archives — Silverstein died in 1999 — and care has been taken to echo his best-known works.
Silverstein’s books of poetry for children — “Where the Sidewalk Ends” and “A Light in the Attic” — were both bestsellers. He was also the author of the bestselling children’s picture book, “The Giving Tree.”
