9780805091984: Pablo Neruda: Poet of the People

Once there was a little boy named Neftalí who loved wild things wildly and quiet things quietly. From the moment he could talk, he surrounded himself with words. Neftalí discovered the magic between the pages of books. When he was sixteen, he began publishing his poems as Pablo Neruda.

Pablo wrote poems about the things he loved―things made by his friends in the café, things found at the marketplace, and things he saw in nature. He wrote about the people of Chile and their stories of struggle. Because above all things and above all words, Pablo Neruda loved people.

About the Author:

Monica Brown is the author of several bilingual books for children inspired by her Peruvian-American heritage. She is a recipient of the Américas Award for Children's Literature and a professor of English at Northern Arizona University.

Julie Paschkis has illustrated many award-winning books, including Glass Slipper, Gold Sandal: A Worldwide Cinderella by Paul Fleischman and Through Georgia's Eyes by Rachel Rodríguez. For Pablo Neruda, Julie traveled to Chile to see Neruda's home and the people that inspired him.

From Booklist:

Brown adds to her growing list of noteworthy picture-book biographies with this lyrical introduction to poet Pablo Neruda. “From the moment he could talk, Neftalí surrounded himself with words that whirled and swirled, just like the river that ran near his home in Chile,” begins the simple, rhythmic text that follows Neruda from childhood to adult fame as an activist and beloved “poet of the people.” Brown distills events into just a few words on each page, and younger children may need further explanation about why, for example, Neruda is pursued by soldiers. And while Paschkis’ whimsical portraits honor the poet’s heritage and work with streams of words woven into the vibrantly patterned artwork, the intriguing design elements include many references that seem aimed at older children and adults. Still, Brown’s succinct lines read like a poem themselves, and they emphasize the infinite places writers find inspiration, from seashores to coal mines to the faces of people they love. A long biographical note and suggested resources conclude this handsome offering. Grades 1-3. --Gillian Engberg
