Out of Wonder: Poems Celebrating PoetsOut of Wonder: Poems Celebrating Poets by Kwame Alexander

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Three writers channel the works of twenty famous poets in this beautiful short book. Accompanied by gorgeous illustrations by Ekua Holmes, the poems copy the style and content of the poets, often borrowing from their best known works. If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, this is indeed a love letter.
