Perhaps the most important thing to note is that the reader is invited wholeheartedly into this delightful world. One never gets the impression of watching the poet experience, but rather, one has the feeling of being pulled along for the journey. And somehow, even with the magical quality of the poems, the reader also has the feeling of someone distinctly human behind the words. There is a real person there, talking and sharing, the kind of person who might agree to read you a bedtime story. It really is the best of both worlds - one foot tucked beneath the comfortable bedding of here and one with the narrator in the land of faraway.
And though I agree with the reviewer who said the collection picks up momentum as it moves along, I disagree that the opening poems are weak. In fact they were some of my favorites in the book.
One thing I would love to see from Alice Pero is a collection of kid's poems. What a gift it would be for her to share her extraordinary imagination with the children of the world!
