2009 Award
African Acrostics
( by Avis Harley/ photos by Deborah Noyes, Candlewick $17.99 Score: )

It’s hard to say what will hold you more, the elegant acrostic poems or glorious photographs. Some of the poems rhyme, others do not…but they are all playful and capture the sense of the creature caught on each facing page. Young people will enjoy reading the up and down acrostic generally found in the first letter of each line. But the poems and portraits of each folio add much more than a little ‘trick’ on each page. These are striking images from game parks in Africa.
