Synopsis

A journey can lead east and west, from north to south, up, down, over, under, in between, and next to.

A journey can last a minute, an hour, a year, a month, a lifetime.

A journey might be slow or fast or both. A journey might be shining. One journey could remind you of another one. Are you sliding? Stumbling? Floating?

Maybe it all depends on your point of view.

Where -- and how -- will these sixteen poems take you?

Winner 2000 Lee Bennett Hopkins Poetry Award

Amazon.com Review
Come with me
To the quiet minute between two noisy minutes
It's always waiting ready to welcome us
Tucked under the wing of the day
I'll be there
Where will you be?

A journey with Naomi Shihab Nye and Dan Yaccarino is impossible to resist. Sixteen luminous poems by Nye are accompanied by Yaccarino's stunning mixed-media collages. Nye, poet, novelist, essayist, and anthologist, writes of journeys--internal and external, short and long, slow and fast. Her poetry invites readers to sail away, to rejoice in the journey as well as the destination, and to notice everything along the way. Yaccarino, award-winning artist, and illustrator of Circle Dogs, Deep in the Jungle, An Octopus Followed Me Home, and others, crafts unusual and compelling collages to lose oneself in. His rich use of color, texture, and pattern complements Nye's deeply layered, absorbing poems. This is a collection to cherish. (Ages 4 and older) --Emilie Coulter
