My selection is Pumpkin Butterfly: poems from the other side of nature, written by Heidi Mordhorst and illustrated by Jenny Reynish. This collection of 23 poems takes a surreal look at a natural world where butterflies are the spirits of newly picked pumpkins. The language is vivid and active and the illustrations are a carefully conceived counterpoint to the poetry.

Friday's Famous First: Can you identify the title and author of this first line? "I started out no more'n a bunch of rags on a Virginia plantation."
