Starred Review, School Library Journal, September, 2008“This stunning picture-book biography combines a lyrical text with wonderfully creative mixed-media illustrations in an impressive and personable homage to an extraordinary and accomplished man.”Starred review, Kirkus Reviews, July 2008"With plain words, appropriate to the style of this master of clear and precisely worded poetry, and brilliant images, Bryant and Sweet introduce Williams and his poetry in a fresh, accessible way. It is entirely possible that this offering will not only acquaint readers with the man and his poetry but will also inspire creativity — Williams would no doubt be pleased.“Shelf Awareness, October 2008.”the passion of both author and artist for their subject shine through on every page—in the pacing, in the layering of the compositions and, fittingly, in the carefully chosen details.“Curriculum Connections, School Library Journal”This gorgeous collage of words and images reveals bits and snatches of Williams's life — an ordinary childhood, a love of science and nature, a busy medical career, and a quiet obsession with poetry. The writer's words are incorporated into the colorful multimedia artwork, creating a lively, lyrical picture-book biography."
