About this title

Synopsis:

The Leithauser brothers are at it again, which is cause for considerable celebration. The author and illustrator duo of Lettered Creatures have once more collaborated to produce another witty and worldly confection of light verse and delicate drawings. Toad to a Nightingale is a fantastic catalogue of creatures - plant, animal, and object - on whom poet Brad Leithauser has bestowed song and spirit and his brother Mark beauty and bodily form. The verse is clear and charming, the drawings of extraordinary precision and invention. Framing this catalogue of surprises is a spirited exchange between the toad and nightingale, suggesting that a soiled toad can sometimes trump the celestial songbird. With the lightness and lyricism of Mozart and the fantasy and invention of Dal?, these verses and their figurations prove that sibling collaborations can certainly provide their rewards, especially for the reader.

About the Author:

He lives in Amherst, Massachusetts, with his wife, and is an Emily Dickinson Sernior Lecturer in the Humanities at Mount Holyoke College.
