Editorial Reviews

Review

"A movingly illustrated selection of Frost's verse....Children will devour these suggestive illustrations as instructors help them unpack the many lessons to be gleaned from Frost's conversational yet complex verse."―Kirkus Reviews

"Paraskevas’s atmospheric paintings evoke themes of seasons, nature, selfhood, and change. With deceptively simple imagery, Frost’s work is accessible to younger readers..."―
Publishers Weekly

A 2018 Notable Poetry Book for Children National Council of Teachers of English

"This beautifully illustrated book contains a selection of 35 poems by Robert Frost.....This is a lovely addition to a poetry collection for middle grade students to introduce some of the better known works of Robert Frost and, perhaps, spark an interest in looking for additional books or information. Recommended"―
School Library Connection

About the Author

Robert Lee Frost was born on March 26th 1874 in San Francisco, California and died on January 29th, 1963 in Boston, Massachusetts. He won the Pulitzer Prize for poetry and was bestowed a Congressional Gold Medal, "in recognition of his poetry, which enriched the culture of the United States and the philosophy of the world." On July 22, 1961 he was named Poet laureate of Vermont. His popularity is unmatched in the annals of American poetry; by the end of his life he had achieved the iconic status of "living legend."

Jay Parini is a poet, novelist, biographer, and critic. He has written eight novels, including Benjamin’s CrossingThe Apprentice LoverThe Passages of H.M., and The Last Station – the latter was made into an Academy Award-nominated film starring Helen Mirren and Christopher Plummer and translated into over thirty languages. He has written biographies of John Steinbeck, Robert Frost, William Faulkner, Jesus, and Gore Vidal. His nonfiction works include The Art of TeachingWhy Poetry Matters and Promised Land: Thirteen Books that Changed America.  He writes for various publications, including The New York TimesThe Guardian, and The Chronicle of Higher Education. He lives in Weybridge, VT.
 

Michael Paraskevas has worked for most major magazines including Sports Illustrated, Time, Town & Country, and Rolling Stone, to name but a few. He has also illustrated and written 24 children’s books over the years with his mother, Betty. The two went on to create and write the animated television series Maggie and the Ferocious Beast for Nickelodeon. Two of their other books were also made into animated series: Marvin the Tap Dancing Horse for PBS and Kids from Room 402 for Fox Family. He and his wife live in Southampton, New York.

Two of their other books were also made into animated series: Marvin the Tap Dancing Horse for PBS and Kids from Room 402 for Fox Family. Betty passed away in 2010 and Mickey continues to work on his books, animated projects, illustrations and paintings for a variety of companies.

His large scale beach paintings have sold all over the world through his gallery in the Hamptons.

Michael Paraskevas works in acrylic, oil, watercolor or whatever the mood suits him at the moment. He also works digitally since the demands of the current illustration market requires quickness and the ability to change things at the last minute.

Michael is always working on something. He is currently writing and drawing a weekly comic, The Green Monkeys for Dan’s Papers. He is also writing and drawing Lili and Derek with his lovely wife Maria.

Michael Paraskevas likes to draw and doodle on his iPad having fought getting one for ages. He keeps a wide variety of sketchbooks about all the events he likes to go to.

Michael and his wife live in Southampton, New York.
