FUN FACTS!

1. Shel Silverstein was also an accomplished songwriter. He wrote “A Boy Named Sue”, “25 Minutes to Go” and “Father of a Boy Named Sue” all performed by Johnny Cash!

2. Silverstein believed books should be published on good quality paper, and was very picky about the size, shape, color, and feel of the paper in his books. He also rarely allowed his books to be published in paperback because he felt that it diminished his work (what’s not to love about that)?!

3. He was a Korean War veteran and was first published in the the military publication Pacific Stars and Stripes.
