"The surrealistic illustrations, which appear to be rendered in pastels, are appealing; the soft edges and warm tones work well with Sandburg's imaginery."--SLJ. "The full-color illustrations are nothing short of breathtaking."--Parents. "...displays the range of everyday topics in which Sandburg found beauty, humor, or pathos....Unfamiliar words are helpfully defined in footnotes...and an introductory biographical essay establishes a context for the poems. Arcella makes a grand debut; his intensely colored sculptural forms, carved from dramatic shadows, have a distinctly '30s look to them...."--Kirkus Reviews. 48 pages (all in color), 8 1/2 x 10.

I'm not sure what the other reviewer is talking about with this book being the wrong picture and reviews from professional sources because they are correct. Unless perhaps Amazon has corrected the mistake since her posting. All the poems and photos for this book are currently accurate.
