An entire book of poems about colors and weather ~ how can it possibly keep the reader's interest? I was sceptical. However, Joyce Sidman's images are so evocative, so crisp, I was completely captivated ~ "In spring, Red sings from treetops: cheer-cheer-cheer, each note dropping like a cherry into my ear/Red turns the maples feathery, sprouts in rhubarb spears; Red squirms on the road after rain." I read the whole thing cover to cover in one sitting. Pamela Zagarenski's fanciful and colorful illustrations perfectly enhance the images in the poems. What a delight!
