Brilliant Illustrations Along With a Fine Selection of Poems
Illustrations/Photos (if applicable)
I've got a soft spot for an anthology of poetry, particularly if the accompanying illustrations are as vivid as the ones in this book. We find here a varied selection of poetry about maps, the Equator, islands, mountains, forests, explorers and their dreams. Some are funny, while others are awestruck. The poets range from frankly famous (Carl Sandburg, Kristine O'Connell George, Jane Yolen) to those who are not yet common household names.
Philip Stanton's illustrations are brilliantly colored, and capture perfectly the wonder within each poem. Recommended.
