I Saw a Peacock with a Fiery Tail
Award-winning Indian artist Ramsingh Urveti tackles a seventeenth-century English poem in this stunningly modern book of white-on-charcoal and charcoal-on-white drawings and cutouts. The poem may be read two ways: either page by page or, using color as a key, every other page. One version yields a sensible, rhyming nature story of cause and effect, and the other an impossible, metaphorical tale. A lyrical way to learn that all is not as it seems, in words or pictures. All ages.
