  • Minor Notes, Volume 1

  • Poetry Comics

    For kids

    Poetry about self-reflection and scientific curiosity adorn vivid illustrations in this gently introspective collection. The book begins in spring and flows through the seasons as the creator explores a different facet of the poetry-writing process and chronicles the friendship of two children. Repetitive wordplay and clever alliterations paired with sometimes rhyming stanzas and occasional blank verse add variety to the assemblage's entries, making each selection a delight to read aloud.
