Jean Little frequently weaves poetry into the fabric of her many novels. The critically accliamed Hey World is a collection of short prose and poems, some of which first made their appearance in Look Through My Window and Kate. The bulk of them are printed here for the first time. With the same blend of sensitivity, insight and candor that has characterized her novels, these short pieces articulate a wide range of young adolescent concerns. "Kate" ponders the nature of love, war, birth, death, siblings, friendship, school, teachers, parents and, of course, members of the opposite sex.

A collection of poems and brief vignettes from the perspective of a girl named Kate Bloomfield, reflecting her views on friendship, school, family life, and the world.From the Back Cover:
Kate Bloomfield is back! And she's got a lot to say -- about school and friends and parents, about cartwheels (she can't do them), about parsnips (she won't eat them), about being alone and being herself, about life and love...even about Dave Nelson, who doesn't know she's alive. Outspoken, funny, sometimes confused but always observant, Kate is writing it all down -- "Hey World, Here I Am!"Notable Children's Books of 1989 (ALA)
