A CRACK IN THE CLOUDS by Constance Levy
CHILDREN'S
Released: Nov. 1, 1998

"A lovely addition to any poetry shelf. (b&w illustrations, not seen) (Poetry. 7-12)"
These smal, winsome poems look hard at nature with the eyes of a child; the brief, clear-eyed tributes to the natural world often capture it with a flash of humor. Read full book review >
A TREE PLACE by Constance Levy
POETRY
Released: April 1, 1994

"Sabuda's occasional soft pencil sketches enhance the format without intruding on the quiet mood of the verse. (Poetry. 5+)"
``Technique'': ``I watched a spider wrap her gnat/with such of flood of tidyness./She twiddled all her nimble feet/And seemed to do a dance in place/While tying round a stream of thread/As pale and white as soft-spun milk,/So careful not to miss one step/Or spill a single/Drop/Of silk!'' Levy might be describing her own craft; like her first book of brief poems about the natural world (I'm Going to Pet a Worm Today, 1991), these 40 new ones capture a childlike sensibility with exquisite economy, artistry, and care.
