Publisher Comments:

The cornerstone series that has sold more than a million copies--and earned lavish critical acclaim.

Praise for books in the POETRY FOR YOUNG PEOPLE series

"It is particularly heartening to come upon... The Poetry for Young People Series [which] should be commended for recognizing that secure stepping stones hold infinitely more hope than forced marches."--Washington Post Book World

"Satisfies in every way."--School Library Journal

"Engaging...both informs and intrigues."--Booklist

"Nothing short of breathtaking."--Parents

With its blend of poetic brilliance and exquisite art, the Poetry for Young People series has won the admiration of critics, educators, children, and parents alike. Every breathtaking volume in this celebrated best-selling collection features an introduction to each poem, full-page images, annotations that define unfamiliar vocabulary, and fascinating biographical information.

John N Serio, editor of Poetry for Young People: Wallace Stevens, and Robert Crockett, illustrator of Poetry for Young People: William Carlos Williams have combined talents to create an absolutely charming and appealing anthology--and one that teachers will joyfully welcome in the classroom, parents to their homes, and childrento their reading and listening enjoyment. With works by such poets as Shakespeare, Langston Hughes, e.e. cummings, and Nikki Giovanni, plus a haiku for every season, it spans the year exquisitely. The superb, yet always child-friendly, images make this a volume not to be missed.
