OVERVIEW
Now beautifully redesigned, this Poetry for Young People collection brings us into the world of Emily Dickinson, where even the most ordinary things can turn magical. In addition to a brief biography of Dickinson, more than 35 much-loved poems include “Im nobody, who are you?” and “I started early, took my dog." Superb, yet always child-friendly, images make this a volume not to be missed.
