Description

Can the world be seen in black and white? Perhaps. Newborn feet ink birth certificates. Father's stethoscope hangs from the lab coat in his closet. Border collies look at the world in plain darks and lights, never marveling at the wonders of rainbows. Kate Miller explores our world through verse in this collection, finding in blacks and whites some of the most colorful images of everyday life. Her simple, inviting monotype prints will attract even reluctant poetry readers.


About the Author

Praise For Poems in Black & White

"The images [are] both precise and evocative." --Publishers Weekly"Stark and beautiful." --Booklist

"Imaginative. . . . The slenderness of the volume will reassure readers with little poetic stamina, while young writers may be inspired to write black and white verses of their own." --Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
