Synopses & Reviews
"Gr. 5 Up...spacious format; a wide variety of poems; and colorful, interpretive illustrations...."--SLJ. "The format is admirable: a handsome sampler of poems, with a short introductory essay, unfamiliar words briefly defined in footnotes, and a few prefatory sentences for each poem to establish context and aid interpretation. 13 of Poe's more accessible poems appear here, including `The Raven,' `The Bells,' `Eldorado,' and `Annabel Lee.'...concludes with passages from short stories that highlight Poe's mastery of prose....Cobleigh provides atmospheric art: an arresting picture of `The Raven,' a cadaverous ghoul in `The Bells,' and a depiction of the narrator of `The Tell-Tale Heart' as a deranged Wee Willy Winky."--Kirkus Reviews. ". . . creepy, unnerving, chilling, and fascinating. . ."--Buzz Weekly. 48 pages (all in color), 8 1/2 x 10.
Spacious format; a wide variety of poems; and colorful, interpretive illustrations.”—School Library Journal. The format is admirable: a handsome sampler of poems, with a short introductory essay, unfamiliar words briefly defined in footnotes, and a few prefatory sentences for each poem to establish context and aid interpretation. Thirteen of Poes more accessible poems appear here, including The Raven, The Bells, Eldorado, and Annabel Lee. ”—Kirkus Reviews.
Well-known for his spine-tingling, spooky stories, Edgar Allan Poe was also a master at writing haunting, deliciously macabre poems. Children will enjoy 13 of his verses—including two of Poe's most famous, "The Raven" and "Annabel Lee"—along with excerpts from eight of his most popular tales, such as “The Tell-Tale Heart,” “The Pit and the Pendulum,” and “The Cask of Amontillado.”
This collection of 13 poems and eight prose selections from Edgar Allan Poe make an ideal introduction to his writing for younger readers. Illustrations.
