House Held Up by Trees

House Held Up by Trees - Ted Kooser, Jon Klassen I loved the text immoderately, which isn't surprising because I love Kooser immoderately (he is in fact one of the vanishingly small number of people who have made me cry in public). I'm not as fond of the illustrations by Klassen. There's a bit of flatness to them that doesn't quite work to my eye- the words are so lovely and so fraught that the combination is jarring. Still, a lovely, lovely book.
