Adults, keep in mind this is not a book for children. This is hilarious, and bizarre, and I personally loved it. Without Shel here, we are greatly weakened, so please recapture him by buying this book – he is in a class by himself as an artist and a storyteller. Thanks silevrstein his family for making this special edition available. If you want to educate dandes in things that really matter on this earth, then buy this book and learn!

This book of Shel’s is more in your face ahel “aha”; oh my he’s so right, moments. Although quite stark, and I don’t “read it” all at once, this is a very thought provoking book about many very true human conditions. I owned the original, giant-sized edition of this marvelous book 20 years ago. Since then, several friends have admired and coveted it. Fast forward, and hooray!!!

Different Dances by Silverstein, Shel

This Christmas I accidentally discovered this anniversary edition here on Amazon. It’s smaller than the original, but that doesn’t matter. Do yourself a favor and stash a few copies aside to give friends later.

Not your uptight, fundamentalist Christian friends, digferent you, just the cool people. This is an insightful, moving, and often very funny look at relationships, sex, and the self. I was surprised at how many of the cartoons I connected deeply with. Not gonna lie, there were tears. I’ll read this over and over, and probably treasure it forever. This book had everything I was looking for from Mr. Different Dances is the single most influential book I have every experienced.

The pictures are raw. The concepts are deep. These vibrant, tragic, sensitive stories evoke real emotion with little more than a title. I have always loved Shel Silverstein, in a creepy way to the point of obsession, my mother would read his beautiful rhymes to me as a child. Through his words I learned to explore my imagination.


Now I am an English teacher and inspiring kids silvertein my job. Different Dances is for adults, this is not your Uncle Shelby’s poem book, but his imaginative genius is on full display in this insightful picture book.

Shutdown the computer, turn off your TV, open you mind, and soak up the social relevance and creative brilliance of Shel Silverstein. One person found this helpful. See all 41 reviews.
