Starflower : the making of a poet, Edna St. Vincent Millay

J. M. Farkas (Author), Emily Vizzo (Author), Jasmin Dwyer (Illustrator)
"A lyrical picture book biography about American 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 by Jasmin Dwyer, Starflower is a poetic picture book biography as fiery and unconventional as Vincent herself"-- Provided by publisher
