Where the sidewalk ends, your next journey begins… …in this lighthearted, humorous and inspirational poetry collection for young people and adults alike (Recommended age, 15 and up.)

The award winning author of "Sofa Boy" and "The Question" exposes and celebrates the "celestial joke that is life" through a hearty helping of creatively-penned observations and hand-drawn sketches in the universally appealing style of Shel Silverstein and Dr. Seuss. No brain-breaking John Milton "Paradise Lost" marathon poems here - just short, light verse as easy to engulf as "popcorn chicken". These are poems that make grown men cry (or giggle) and still feel like a man in the morning. They'll also make you smile, smirk, cringe, ponder the nature of things, roll your eyes, call your mother, hug a child, kiss a dog, skip through the woods...and long for all sorts of life affirming and joyous things! Poems you'll love to learn by heart and annoy others by reciting verbatim! But don't just take our word for it. Take a look at what these poetry "experts" have to say: "The pretentious title aside, the work is not without merit. It's surprisingly bearable at times." - Poetry Snob Monthly. "Our hometown boy done real good!" - Midwest Hick Times. "Wow. Talk about having your finger on the pulse of the human condition. This dude's a modern day Sophocles - and that's no exaggeration!" - Exaggeration Press. "Why is it anyone with a rhyming dictionary thinks he can be a poet?" Enough already!" - Some Jerkhole Blogger. "It's VERY Shel Silverstein. Almost TOO Shel Silverstein, if you know what I mean...." - Shel Silverstein Fan Club. So there you have it. If you long for an original and amusingly moving poetry collection to make you feel nostalgic for a lifetime of heartfelt memories, look no further. That light in the attic will be you...nestling into bed for a quiet read with a nice cup of cocoa to warm you down to your toes before floating off to dreamland. Scroll up...and start your journey with a click... -------------------------------------------------------------- About The Author: Scott J.

    I seldom read poems written in English. Most of the poems I've come across were hard to comprehend and the meanings were always kind of ambiguous. However, this book actually intrigued me. The poems inside this book are like entries collected from a dream journal. Or interesting stories which are too crazy to be true. Some poems actually scared me a little (in a good way, though) and some poems made me ponder over some serious issues long and hard. In general, I enjoyed reading this book pretty m I seldom read poems written in English. Most of the poems I've come across were hard to comprehend and the meanings were always kind of ambiguous.

The index section also helped me get to know the author's source of inspiration better, thus I could understand the deep meanings those poems tried to deliver. If you like poetry, you will love this book!
