"This revised and expanded edition of the original 1964 work provides a delightful showcase for Silverstein's humor. It seems that there is this rhinoceros for sale . . . cheap . . . and there are any number of unusual but practical advantages to having one . . . Silverstein's wit comes shining through each page of expressive line drawings. . . ."--School Library Journal.

Shel Silverstein is best known as a children’s book author who wrote and illustrated a number of bestselling books that have charmed millions of readers of all ages. Crossing many artistic boundaries, he was also a noted songwriter and an accomplished playwright. Silverstein first came to prominence in the 1950s as a cartoonist for Playboy, where he assumed the role of roving ambassador for the up-and-coming magazine. This esteemed assignment—due in no small part to his friendship with Hugh M. Hefner—was the auspicious beginning of a most amazing career. Shel Silverstein died in 1999.
