Publisher Summary

Millie McDeevit screamed a scream So loud it made her eyebrows steam. She screamed so loud Her jawbone broke, Her tongue caught fire, Her nostrils smoked… Poor Screamin’ Millie is just one of the unforgettable characters in this wondrous new book of poems and drawings by the creator of Where the Sidewalk Ends and A Light in the Attic. Here you will also meet Allison Beals and her twenty-five eels; Danny O’Dare, the dancin’ bear; the Human Balloon; and Headphone Harold. So come, wander through the Nose Garden, ride the Little Hoarse, eat in the Strange Restaurant, and let the magic of Shel Silverstein open your eyes and tickle your mind. 1996 Children’s Books (NY Public Library) Editor’s Chice 1996 (Booklist) 1997 Quick Picks for Reluctant Young Adult Readers (ALA) 1997 Books for the Teen Age (NY Public Library) Children’s Choices for 1997 (IRA/CBC)
