Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In a lovely pairing, folk artist Moses's images of rural Americana appear in between and opposite verses from Frost's titular poem. Moses's tableaus offer changing greens and shifting skies; landscapes dotted with country cabins; covered wagons; and children flying kites outside a rustic schoolhouse, while Frost describes nature's ephemera with impassioned restraint: "Oh, give us pleasure in the orchard white,/ Like nothing else by day, like ghosts by night." Though the poem is as melancholy as it is hopeful, readers should find solace in the pastoral calm of the subdued paintings and in Frost's plea to treasure the beauty in a wealth of fleeting moments. All ages. (Feb.)

I was delighted to find this harmonious pairing of these two great artists. The complaint of the other reviewer (too many paintings) doesn't bother me at all. I don't need such a literal illustration of the poem. I'm happy to turn pages just to pause over the beauty of Grandma Moses' images.

The poem and paintings, of course, are awesome, but the format of the book does not work at all. The text and paintings just don't flow. There are too many paintings, which are all somewhat similar, and they disrupt the poetry in disjointed places. Plus, the format is an awkward rectangle. It seems like the publisher wanted to showcase the paintings more, but it all suffers as a result. We have Susan Jeffer's illustrated version of Stopping By Woods, and it's perfect. We've read it a million times. I was looking forward to another experience like that. The binding came dented, so I took that opportunity to send it back.

I bought this for my grandchildren after buying a Grandma Moses print at an auction. Great gift!
