A Pocket of Time: The Poetic Childhood of Elizabeth Bishop
Elizabeth Bishop (Author) Rita Wilson (Illustrator)
DescriptionElizabeth Bishop (1911-1979) grew up to become a famous poet, winning the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry in 1956. Before that she was a little girl who lived with her Gammie and Pa in Great Village, Nova Scotia. It was there that Bishop learned to walk, to read, to write, to sing hymns, and to catch bumblebees in foxglove flowers. It was there she first went to school and, when she was five, where her mother left and never returned. Lovingly rendered, this visual and lyrical feast tells the story of Bishop's childhood days, inspired by Bishop's own poetry and prose, paired with Quentin Blake-style artwork from illustrator Emma FitzGerald. A love letter to words, 'A Pocket of Time' is a lesson for young readers in finding the poetry in everything.
