Danny Makaskill's ImaginateImaginate’ is trial biker’s Danny MacAskill’s most ambitious project so far. The engaging Scotsman’s earlier spectacular videos – ‘Inspired Bicycles’ and ‘Way Back Home’ – set street trial benchmarks, turning him into a cult idol far beyond the free ride community. His web-based clips have had 30 million hits and counting. ‘Imaginate’ sees Danny re-inventing the bike video genre yet again. The plot: in his nursery young Danny (played by a child actor) is playing with a toy cyclist. The colourful toys scattered about the room transform themselves for real-life Danny MacAskill to run a trial parcours with and among them. The set allows MacAskill to show off his new tricks as he jumps and whirls across gigantic building blocks, enormous crayons, playing cards and a model railway station. Even toy soldiers suddenly jump alive to play their tricks on him. This is the most imaginative stage set for a bike trial – ever.

Where the Sidewalk Ends

Where the Sidewalk Ends turns forty! Celebrate with this anniversary edition that features an eye-catching commemorative red sticker. This classic poetry collection, which is both outrageously funny and profound, has been the most beloved of Shel Silverstein’s poetry books for generations.

Where the sidewalk ends, Shel Silverstein’s world begins. There you’ll meet a boy who turns into a TV set and a girl who eats a whale. The Unicorn and the Bloath live there, and so does Sarah Cynthia Sylvia Stout who will not take the garbage out. It is a place where you wash your shadow and plant diamond gardens, a place where shoes fly, sisters are auctioned off, and crocodiles go to the dentist.

Shel Silverstein’s masterful collection of poems and drawings is one of Parent & Child magazine’s 100 Greatest Books for Kids. School Library Journal said, “Silverstein has an excellent sense of rhythm and rhyme and a good ear for alliteration and assonance that make these poems a pleasure to read aloud.”

Shel Silverstein’s incomparable career as a children’s book author and illustrator began with Lafcadio, the Lion Who Shot Back. In 1964, Shel’s creativity continued to flourish as four more books were published in the same year—Don’t Bump the Glump!, A Giraffe and a Half, Who Wants a Cheap Rhinoceros?, and the beloved classic The Giving Tree. Later he continued to build his remarkable body of work with Where the Sidewalk Ends, A Light in the Attic, Falling Up, Every Thing On It, The Missing Piece, The Missing Piece Meets the Big O, and Runny Babbit.
