The first thing that made me want to read this were the gorgeous cover. It’s so beautiful. So even if I’m not that into and used to poetry, I wanted to read it. Maybe not the best decision… Not to say it’s bad, but wow there were a lot of big words in this. So the combination being a newbie at reading poetry and not having English as my first language, it made it so much harder for me to read. Not that I didn’t understand the words, it just made harder for me. But I made it and I’m sure people who are more used to poetry would like this so much more than me.
I loved the illustrations in this book. They were so beautiful. I’m happy that the art also was inside the book because it was the art that made me want to read it.
So I will recommend this to people who like poetry already. It’s definitely not a book you will want to start out with.
