Abstract

‘Walt Whitman loved words’. So begins Barbara Kerley’s and Brian Selznick’s (2004), a biography of the American poet for young readers that has been recognized as a Robert F. Sibert Honor Book. Kerley and Selznick trace the poet from his beginnings as a printer’s apprentice to his volunteer work as a nurse during the American Civil War; and from the young Walt poring over the pages of and to his own creative output being interpreted as the voice of his nation. Like all of Selznick’s books, is illustrated with precise, evocative drawings for all ages. The bestselling author and illustrator returns to the poet with his latest, (2019). Among Selznick’s many other popular books for children are (2007) and (2011) (covers available at https://www.thebrianselznick.com/books.htm). These two works have now been adapted into award-winning films by Martin Scorsese (2011) and Todd Haynes (2017), respectively.
