Book Review #1167
Dark Emperor & Other Poems of the Night by Joyce Sidman, illustrated by Rick
Loved, loved, loved the illustrations! The colors and detail were fabulous. I especially loved how the little red eft wandered throughout the book and was a key character. The poems were nice - nothing terribly fancy about them, but I did enjoy them. I really liked the blend of poetry and non-fiction to create a book about animals that is fun to read and yet still simple. I would definitely recommend.
