Item Description...
Overview
A boy meets an older woman at the zoo, and together they observe the animals while she tells him about the process of writing poetry.

Publishers Description
""Are you a scientist?" I ask.

Marianne stops writing and looks up.
"No, I'm not a scientist -- I'm a poet."

"Oh," I reply. I've never met a poet before.
"What, exactly, does a poet do?" I ask her.

"For me, being a poet begins with watching." "

On a trip to the zoo, young Jonathan returns a lost hat to Marianne, a woman who wears all black and scribbles notes in a little book. When Marianne invites him to tour the zoo with her, Jonathan makes a new friend and learns that he too can write poetry.

With lighthearted illustrations and a poetically told story, this picture book biography of poet Marianne Moore offers readers a glimpse of the writing process and their own potential to become writers.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Not interesting  Apr 30, 2009
This picture book is about a little boy meeting poet Marianne Moore at at a zoo. I found it less interesting than most picture books. It just seemed a little boring. The boy meets Marianne after she loses her hat. She then walks with him through the zoo and tells him about being a poet. But there was nothing fun about that, except maybe that they were at a zoo. Even that seemed tedious, though. One of Jen Bryant's better book is Abe's Fish, about Abraham Lincoln, which I reviewed also.
