Lillian Morrison is a noted poet and anthologist. She has written many poetry books and she was awarded the ALA Grolier Foundation award for her outstanding contribution to the stimulation of reading by young people. She is an avid sports participant and fan.
Susan Spellman specialises in drawing the human body, providing anatomical studies for science books as well as illustrations for children's publications.
Gr 4-8-This collection includes 15 new poems along with 27 that were previously published in collections such as Sidewalk Racer and Other Poems of Sports and Motion (Lothrop, 1977; o.p.). Through the use of rhythm, apt metaphors, and vocabulary choice, the movement and style of a sport come to life. Even the appearance of the lines on the page, as in "Slalom Skier," can be suggestive. Throughout, Morrison describes the sports enthusiast's spirit and determination to try again. Spellman's lively, exuberant pen-and-ink drawings have an almost videolike quality; though they are still, the implicit motion leaps from the page. This is a fine blend of poetry and art that celebrates the joy and excitement of sports.
