Collectible Books by Shel Silverstein
"And now, children, your Uncle Shelby is going to tell you a story about a very strange lion - in fact, the strangest lion I have ever met." So begins Shel Silverstein's very first children's book, Lafcadio, the Lion Who Shot Back. It's funny and sad and has made readers laugh and think since it was published in 1963. It was followed the next year by three more books.
