  1. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    [SHELL] And uh, many of my little friends have asked old Uncle Shelby
  2. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    why he has written this book and why he loves children so dearly. And to these I
  3. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    must answer, although old Uncle Shelby has never
  4. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    blessed with children of his own, little ones have always had a
  5. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    very special place in his tired old heart.
  6. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    Yes, I have heard them crying late at night and
  7. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    I have though about them. I have heard them playing and laughing outside my window while
  8. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    I was trying to sleep and I have thought about them.
  9. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    I have seen the pictures they have drawn on my car and I have
  10. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    thought and thought and thought about them. and so this book, to help
  11. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    help my little friends get all the things in life
  12. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    they so richly deserve.
  13. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    [STUDS] This is a preface, to a rather unusual children's book, it's called:
  14. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    Uncle Shelby's ABZ Book For Children. And our guest this morning, the author
  15. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    , how do we describe him? He is a triple threat man. He is an author,
  16. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    cartoonist, traveler, at the moment entertainer at the Gate of Horn.
  17. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    Shell Silvertein who liner notes I have read and unfortunately
  18. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    I have not yet seen, but have read some of his writings
  19. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    and seen some of his cartoons, and have heard about him from mutual friends
  20. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    who opinions I respect. And so delighted, Shell, to have you as a guest this morning.
  21. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    [SHELL] Well, its really my pleasure to be here Studs.
  22. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    More than any other interview I've ever had, really, in all honesty
  23. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    'cause I admire your stuff so very much.
  24. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    [STUDS]I should make it clear, thank you, that you
  25. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    are from Chicago originally. Since you started
  26. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    reading the preface to this book, this is talked about a great deal.
  27. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    People now talk, this book, the ABZ Book For Children.
  28. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    'Pose you tell us about this book?
  29. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    [SHELL] Well, ah, first of all it's not for children, you know.
  30. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    It's a book for children, but you better keep it away
  31. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    from children really. Its for adults, for people that have children.
  32. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    It's for teeneagers, they seem to go for it quite a bit.
  33. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    It's for kids that are, just, maybe oh, past ten years old.
  34. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    They'd probably get a big kick out of it.
  35. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    And uh, it's not in the usual form of the "A" if for apple
  36. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    "B" is for Baby stuff, you know?
  37. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    Only it's a little different, it tells kids to do real rotten, crummy things,
  38. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    you know? It tells them to, uh, eat a lot of green apples
  39. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    and, you know, dig a hole and bury their sister in it
  40. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    and it tells them to throw an egg up to the ceiling
  41. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    and the giant in the ceiling will reach down and catch the egg. Things like that.
  42. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    [STUDS] Things like that. Gentle though?
  43. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    [SHELL] Gentle [laughing]
  44. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    [STUDS]"'B' is for Baby", and this is from Shell's, Uncle Shelby's book,
  45. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    "'B' is for Baby. Picture the baby. The baby is fat. The baby is pretty.
  46. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    Play baby play. See the baby play. Play baby play.
  47. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    The baby can cry, the baby can laugh. Pretty pretty baby.
