Emily

(1992)
A Picture Book by

 
From Michael Bedard and Caldecott-winning illustrator Barbara Cooney comes a story

about American poet Emily Dickinson and the young girl who befriends her.


A young girl who lives across the street from the reclusive Emily Dickinson gets her chance to meet the poet when her mother is invited to play the piano for Emily. The girl sneaks up to Emily's room and exchanges a small gift for an authentic poem, which is included in the book.

"This fictionalized encounter . . . is, like a Dickinson sonnet, a quiet gem: unassuming upon first glance, it is in fact deeply lustrous, with new facets becoming apparent the longer one looks.." - Publishers Weekly

"In this imaginative and unusual picture book . . . the language of the text is lyrical . . . The illustrations convey a sense of place and time long ago, from drawing rooms to clothing. This is a picture book to read aloud and share... [Readers] will find that Bedard's charming story demystifies the person and offers some understanding of her odd behavior." - School Library Journal

"Two time Caldecott award winning illustrator Barbara Cooney's richly detailed oil paintings enhance the moving story of Dickinson's extraordinary private life." - Children's Literature
