Throughout the collection, Walker’s pithy portraits are accompanied by Gill’s trademark colored-pencil illustrations, here expressively and somewhat abstractly rendered in muted tones…a provocative verse introduction to what lies on and deep below the Earth’s surface.
The combination of Walker’s tiny jewels of poetry and Grill’s oversize pictures will draw children into contemplating the natural wonders of the world.
A lovely melding of science and art, perfectly positioned for our age of STEAM.
The noted nonfiction writer turns from prose to poetry here in nearly thirty haiku about the planet Earth…The verses could…pique the interest of young scientists.
