"There are many books by Chris Raschka that I love. I recently found a copy of his “Endearments Around The World” that is a gathering of sweet words people use for their children, like “cupcake” and “honey bun”; and a continuing favorite is the “Hello, Goodbye Window.” Now a new book that is a tribute to a poem and story about John Keats who wrote so many wonderful poems, including this sweet adventure in a letter to his sister. Raschka’s illustrations wander just as the words do, illuminating this boy’s adventure with Keats’ words." said.

" I mean, yes, Chris Raschka. But I'm not sure of the kid audience. Seems more like lit majors who are fans of Keats. " said.

" The art wasn't my cup of tea, and we all know my stance on poetry. This particular poem took me a while to get into the groove, but by the fourth part I quite liked it.The historical information at the back was interesting. I didn't know John Keats died so young, or of tuberculosis.I finished the book and went to adopt a tuberculosis-detecting rat through the APOPO charity. " said.

" Chris Raschka beautifully brings to life a John Keats poem. " said.

" Raschka's whimsical, free-flowing illustrations are a charming complement to Keats's lighthearted, playful verse. " said.

" Love Keats and the poem, didn't care for the art. " said.

" I didn't know the story of this poem; knowing the story I liked it all the more. " said.

" Delightful combination of a classic poem with fun illustrations " said.
