Reviews

Eloquent free verse poems recall pivotal events in the life of Maya Angelou. Layered illustrations reinforce the weight of words--and their absence. This exquisite tribute to one of America's most influential poets arrives just in time for young people to celebrate Angelou's appearance on the quarter. -- Booklist (starred review)

A loving tribute in free verse to a writer who found her home, and herself, in her words. -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Collier's richly textured assemblage of collage and watercolor employs light, pattern, and subtle imagery that add depth to every image... This is a thoughtfully rendered biography of a dazzling figure. -- Publishers Weekly (starred review)
