Delightful harmony and boundless imagination: these characteristics make Wallace Stevens’ work very special, and perfect for children. Twenty-seven of his finest verses, evocatively illustrated, provide the perfect introduction to Stevens’ poetry. “From a Junk” reveals a boat at sea in the moonlight that “burns...and glistens, wide and wide, under the five-horned stars of night.” A little girl—“sweeter than the sound of the willow”—proudly dressed in her Sunday best accompanies the child-centered “Song.” From the farm landscape of “Ploughing on Sunday” to the three delicate dancing figures of “The Plot Against the Giant,” each picture and each poem will delight.
