The simple picture book biography of the Chilean poet, Pablo Neruda, turns into a wondrous work of art through Julie Paschkis' illustrations. Spanish and English words flow across the pages-- becoming ribbons of water, flower petals and leaves, protest flags, and sunlight. An exquisite testament to Neruda's legacy-- the words he loved and left for us to read.
