" I enjoyed reading this biography and I loved how it was illustrated. " said.

" This is a fantastic look at the life of e.e. cummings, one of America's finest poets. The illustrations are fun, and the pages are set up to evoke his poetry. <3 " said.

" A picture book biography of ee complete with poems. " said.

" I'm a sucker for biopics of poets for kids, that tell the story of the poet's childhood. "The Dreamer" By Pam Munoz Ryan is another in this genre. Can be read like a long, drawn-out evening meal with lots of discussion with kids, which is pretty much how all great picture books should be. " said.

" M. Burgess creates a timeline of e. e. cummings' life that is telling of his evolution as a poet with his connections to nature and all the little details. Dynamic illustrations by K. Di Giacomo complement the biography. " said.

" Such a beautiful and stunning picture book to explain the history and the poetry of e.e. cummings!Not only does the book explain his history in an interesting and easy to follow fashion, but it intersperses excerpts from his poetry along the way demonstrating style and form without battering the reader over the head by it. Great resource for Poetry Month and beyond. " said.

" Edward Estlin Cummings is one of my all-time favorite writers in any genre and this fantastic picture book - so beautifully drawn, so beautifully written - perfectly depicts why he is so great, while giving a lot of interesting and riveting information about how cummings came to be the poet I know and love. " said.

" Hipster parents alert!This picture book biography makes really nice use of typeface and wordplay, and pairs images with text is in a spare yet surreal way that works beautifully for a subject like e.e. cummings. Really well done, and a good pick for young word nerds. Would pair nicely with The Noisy Paint Box or The Right Word. " said.
