KIRKUS REVIEW

Inspired by a verse of A. Vvedensky,"" a lovely litany of queries and subtly modulated responses: ""Are the wolves asleep? Asleep...And the birds? Asleep, asleep...And the children? All asleep...Only you and the wind are awake. And the wind sings, 'Sleep, sleep. You too, you too....'"" Tafuri visualizes the drowsing world in luscious muted tones defined in crisp pen lines varied with gently feathered edges. Quintessentially simple and altogether beguiling: a perfect choice for tuck-in time.
