The Aspiring Poet's Journal | 23-Jun-09

The aspiring poet's journal / Friot, Bernard. -- New York : Abrams Books for Young Readers, 2008. (Book) Guide

This is a beautifully produced American book with creative writing exercises for every day of the year. Each page is animated by a vivid drawing or painting by Herve Tullet, the French illustrator library users might know from his Alphabet poem collaboration with Michael Rosen. Each day's page includes a quote from a writer about poetry or imagination, as well as reading and writing ideas to help inspire young people. It is a thick and satisfyingly weighty book, bursting with ideas.
