Lazy Jane

Upon the advice of a co-worker, today I went out and bought The Max Where the Sidewalk Ends. I haven’t looked at that book since I wore banana clips on a regular basis. I was giggling though it at Target next to some new parents buying a fuzzy-touch-the-page book for their little one remembering the absurdities that Shel Silverstein writes. Here’s Lazy Jane, which for whatever reason makes me smile.

    lol that was a great book, I remember reading it in like 3rd or 4th grade. And the follow up too!

  2. Ahh, that takes me back. That was some good poetry in Elementary school.

    I remember the boneless chicken who layed scrambled eggs. The man was a genius.

    i always pair Shel with Cat Stevens. I think it’s the song Moon Shadow.

    Awww….hurray! Shel’s were some of my favorite books growing up. “The Giving Tree” was the best. I’m sure I’ve still got a copy of that somewhere. Hmmmmm….

    maybe jane is not as lazy as everyone thinks. maybe she just fell and hurt herself, and no one believes her, and now she is thirsty, but her ankles dont work so well. did anyone think of that?

    The illustration of the girl reminds me so much of James Thurber’s crude cartoons that he drew.

    Also, I think I’ve seen this before but I don’t know when or where it was.
