‘Too special for just once-a-week reading, Eloise Greenfield's 20 exuberant poems are matched by the bright colors of Mr. Amos Ferguson's life-filled paintings. His native Caribbean glows as vividly in the words as in the full-page primitive pictures. . . . A perfect collaboration between two master imagemakers." 'SLJ.

About the Author:

Eloise Greenfield's love of writing shines through brilliantly in each and every one of her books, which include Honey, I Love and Other Love Poems and How They Got Over: African Americans and the Call of the Sea, both illustrated by Jan Spivey Gilchrist. She is the recipient of the Coretta Scott King Award, the Foundation for Children's Literature Hope S. Dean Award, and the National Council for the Social Studies Carter G. Woodson Book Award. Ms. Greenfield lives in Washington, DC. You can follow her on Twitter @ELGreenfield.

From Publishers Weekly:

In the Bahamas, according to this collection of gentle poems, people "walk together on Sundays" and stop "at the place where / two trees arch as one /leaves touching / like family." Like Mattie Lou O'Kelley's primitive folk art paintings of Georgia, Ferguson's flat canvases of his native islands are bright and colorful, and Greenfield's simply worded poems offer an enthusiastic tour of island life. "Look at that!" the reader is told after turning to a portrait of a woman in a fine blue dress; "Look at that lady / in the saucer hat." Tourists "fill their bags with fascinating stuff," and fishermen haul in yellow fish with bait that "works a whole / lot better than / a wish / if you really / want to catch a fish." Perspective and relative sizes are buoyantly askew in these vibrant paintings where large sea birds hover over milk white lilies and "sing a song of colors." All ages.
