Product Details

Praise

“This fictionalized encounter . . . is, like a Dickinson sonnet, a quiet gem: unassuming upon first glance, it is in fact deeply lustrous, with new facets becoming apparent the longer one looks..”—Publishers Weekly

“In this imaginative and unusual picture book . . . the language of the text is lyrical . . . The illustrations convey a sense of place and time long ago, from drawing rooms to clothing. This is a picture book to read aloud and share…[Readers] will find that Bedard’s charming story demystifies the person and offers some understanding of her odd behavior.”—School Library Journal

Two time Caldecott award winning illustrator Barbara Cooney’s richly detailed oil paintings enhance the moving story of Dickinson’s extraordinary private life.”—Children’s Literature
