“A visual and thematic stunner.” —Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review
“Brown and Paschkis paint a compelling portrait of a man who saw the world as a joyful, complex, and beautiful poem waiting to be unveiled.” —Publishers Weekly
“Brown’s succinct lines read like a poem themselves, and they emphasize the infinite places writers find inspiration, from seashores to coal mines to the faces of people they love.” —Booklist
“Impassioned (story)telling combine with Paschkis’s vibrant, decorative style for a book high in child appeal.” —School Library Journal
“It all adds up to an intriguing taste of Neruda’s themes and concerns, winningly dramatized in the splendor of Paschkis’s illustrations.” —Horn Book Magazine
Additionally the students and teachers I have shared this book with have certainly reacted as I hoped.
Julie Paschkis' charming & flowing illustrations in spectacular colors that make the eyes smile make this book fantastic.
This is a great biography of Pablo Neruda who was once known as Neftalí and his love for writing poetry.
With beautiful writing and breathtaking illustrations, this book is magnificent! I especially loved all the words embedded in the art. Read morePublished 11 days ago by Candi Sary
Good kid's book that will make a nice present. Thought I was ordering Neruda's poetry instead of his bio. My mistake.Published 14 days ago by villie
