|Elizabeth Barrett Browning. Mati McDonough, illus.|
|Pages/Publication Date:||32 / 2016|
Among the best-loved verses in English literature, Elizabeth Barrett Browning's 43rd poem from Sonnets from the Portuguese gets a different twist here, as it serves as the emotional subtext of a father-son fishing trip. Using watercolors and paper collage, Mati McDonough brings a 3-D element to these illustrations for readers up to 8 (and poetry fans of all ages), which capture the joys of taking a road trip, learning how to cast a line, hooking a fish for the first time—and letting it go.
