This is a unique anthology of poems that serves both as an introduction to poetry and a presentation of specific city impressions and experiences relevant to the young readers' own lives. Fanciful, funny, angry, and sometimes wistfully sad, here are poems by over fifty poets - from Carl Sandburg to Langston Hughes, from Walt Whitman to Lawrence Ferlinghetti and Evelyn Tooley Hunt. "Sharp, immediate, full of evocative music ... the book has poems whose sequences arrive thrilling and smiting at one's life!”
