Poetry for Young People: Edgar Allan Poe

by Brod Bagert, Carolynn Cobleigh
OVERVIEW

Well-known for his spine-tingling, spooky stories, Edgar Allan Poe was also a master at writing haunting, deliciously macabre poems. Children will enjoy 13 of his verses—including two of Poes most famous, "The Raven" and "Annabel Lee"—along with excerpts from eight of his most popular tales, such as “The Tell-Tale Heart,” “The Pit and the Pendulum,” and “The Cask of Amontillado.”

PRAISE

"Cobleigh's rich palette and haunting illustrations are the perfect pairing to Poe's often macabre poems and Bagert's short commentaries give the reader just enough insight to begin exploring the works on their own." —Children's Literature
