A delightful children's book about one of my favorite poets, Pablo Neruda. The writing is fun and just a summary of his life, but the artwork is gorgeous. Each illustration shows English and Spanish words floating together. The words form the basis of worldly things in the illustrations: books, trees, sunlight, wind, etc. These are all examples of Neruda's poetry, as he often wrote about everyday things.
