Beastly Verse - Joohee Yoon

JooHee Yoon has created a magical poetry collection, making color-filled and witty woodblock prints for a fine selection of Beastly Verse (Enchanted Lion, $18.95). The menagerie includes an eel, crocodile, snail, yak, hyena, and pelicans. It’s a beautifully made book: large format, cloth spine, printed on thick paper. Yoon’s prints use only teal, pink, and yellow, but wittily combine them to form many layers of secondary colors. Some of the poems have a surprise foldouts, such as Blake’s “The Tiger,” Lawrence’s “Humming-Bird,” and, in Laura Richards’s “Eletelephony,” an entangled elephant. Each delightful page of Beastly Verse is wonderful to savor, to turn, and to read aloud. Ages 6-10. András Goldinger
