Description
"Are you a scientist?" I ask. Marianne stops writing and looks up. "No, I'm not a scientist -- I'm a poet.""Oh," I reply. I've never met a poet before. "What, exactly, does a poet do?" I ask her."For me, being a poet begins with watching." On a trip to the zoo, young Jonathan returns a lost hat to Marianne, a woman who wears all black and scribbles notes in a little book. When Marianne invites him to tour the zoo with her, Jonathan makes a new friend and learns that he too can write poetry.With lighthearted illustrations and a poetically told story, this picture book about poet Marianne Moore offers readers a glimpse of the writing process and encourages them to become writers too.
