I tend to like humor and I have found that incorporating funny or odd sayings for my language learning often helps cement it in my mind better than generic ones.
So in light of that, I am trying really hard to find a Russian version of Shel Silverstein books. So far though I am coming up with zero. I am still in the beginning stages of Russian so maybe that hampers my searching. Maybe his books haven’t been translated into Russian but I really can’t tell.
If his books haven’t been translated into Russian, does anyone know a comparable author who writes funny children’s poems?
Also is there a website where one can look up an author/book title and see all the languages that it has been translated into?
Thank you and will check back much later as I will be at work all day.
Here what I found. There is only four books translated into Russian officially.

I really appreciate this. Thank you. I was coming up empty and I thought that there was absolutely no books by him in Russian versions. Thank you very much FedorS.
Check out Григорий Остер
Russian classic children’s poets are also
Сергей Михалков (also incidentally the author of the Russian anthem)
I’m sorry I didn’t reply sooner. My birthday is tomorrow so I have been absent from Lingq.
Thank you for looking these things up for me. This really helps me. I appreciate it greatly.
