About the Author
"An impressive treetop view shows boy and beagle confronting the diverging path, emphasizing the magnitude of choice... A favorite Frost poem reveals how serendipitous choice affects a lifetime. (Picture book. 4-8)"
- Kirkus Reviews
"THE ROAD NOT TAKEN... with illustrations by Vivian Mineker, does a wonderful job of reintroducing a well-known poem without altering a single word...This is a book that begs rereading."
- Laurel Snyder, The New York Times
"Golden, autumnal shades by Mineker mark Frost's archetypal "wood," as a red-haired child with a canine companion walks toward two roads that diverge. Seen from high above, the child resembles an abstract shape faced with the choice between two distinct paths. The boy's choice leads to pivotal life moments: in one series of images, he grows older as he plays with tinker toys, then holds a book of architecture, then graduates from school. On another spread, chasing his still-spry dog leads him to meet his life partner, which lead to children, grandchildren, and old age. Mineker captures the poignancy and weight of Frost's most well-known poem while delivering an accessible story of choices and personal journeys to young readers. Ages 5-8. (Mar.)"
