He became the author of many beloved books for children, including The Giving Tree, A Giraffe and a Half, Where the Sidewalk Ends, A Light in the Attic and Falling Up. Shel's books are now published in more than thirty languages. He has also been a musician, singer, Grammy-winning songwriter, cartoonist and screenwriter.
