Belated Happy Birthday, Shel Silverstein!

Best know as beloved children’s author and poet but, did you know he was also a cartoonist, songwriter, and screenplay writer!  Silverstein lived a very diverse and interesting life!


Random Fact:  Shel wrote the lyrics and music for “The Cover of the Rolling Stone,” which was performed and recorded by Dr. Hook.
