This handsome volume features Brian Pinkney's dignified scratchboard artwork accompanying Hughes' 66 poems for youth, 59 of which appeared in an earlier edition. The splendid layout and design, choice of paper and judicious use of two colors for the text add elegance to this tribute to an important poet who wrote both in dialect and in standard English. (Age 11 and older)
