"J. M. Farkas and Emily Vizzo's Starflower is a lyrical picture book biography about Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Edna St. Vincent Millay's childhood and the two sisters who inspired her.

 Good things come in threes, like peas, like wishes, like sisters. Vincent--American poet Edna St. Vincent Millay--began writing and publishing poetry as a child. She grew up in coastal Maine with her two sisters and plenty of books, music, and nature, but often without parents--her father left home when they were young, and her mother, a nurse, traveled for months at a time to support them.

Vincent and her two sisters often had to fiercely fend for themselves, from the daily to-do lists of keeping house, through bitterly cold winters and blight, which proved to be good fodder for indoor and outdoor adventures alike--and for poetry.

 

Gorgeously illustrated in full color by Jasmin Dwyer, Starflower is a poetic picture book biography as fiery and unconventional as Vincent herself."

 

Includes Photographs of, and Poetry by, Edna St. Vincent Millay.
