HarperCollins Children's Books

Nearly a dozen years after his death, Shel Silverstein will once again hit the shelves with a new book of poems called Everything On It.

Silverstein gained fame for penning children’s classics like The Giving Tree, Where the Sidewalk Ends and The Light in the Attic. Members of his family selected the poems and illustrations in Every Thing On It from his archives, and took care to make sure the content echoed his past work.

The book will be released in September, just in time for schoolbound kids to discover Silverstein’s poems — while their nostalgic parents remember how they teared up reading The Giving Tree. (What, it couldn’t have just been NewsFeed, right?) (via Los Angeles Times)
