KIRKUS REVIEW

Valerie Worth's small, solid poems are consistently accessible but never condescending or compromising. The observations are sharp, matter-of-fact -- fresh but unforced -- the subjects deliberately prosaic -- the reading pleasure derived as often from the Swenson-like sound as the uninflated sense. Natalie Babbitt's precise, understated drawings have the same virtues.
