These whimsical, timeless tales, by one of our most treasured poets, will appeal to any generation.The four tales in this enchanting, newly illustrated volume, tell of lonely and extraordinary characters finding friendship in unlikely companions. Clever, insightful, and magical, peopled with vivid characters—a house that prefers one bird to any human inhabitants, an elephant paralyzed with delight, a fairy who "always breakfasted on light and silence"here are tales as only Cummings could write them.

These are lovely . . . read them out loud to Z several years ago and he's re-reading them to himself at night in bed because he's dug what E.E. Cummings poetry he's encountered lately. ( )
