Sail Away

by Langston Hughes
Illustrated by Ashley Bryan

Published by Atheneum, 2015
32 pages
ISBN: 978𢴒81430852

Ages 310

Fifteen poems by Langston Hughes are lovingly illustrated by artist Ashley Bryan in brightly colored, cut-paper collage. There is such jubilance in Bryan抯 images, which singularly celebrate the natural world about which Hughes was writing in many of the poems. There are also beautiful, brown-skinned children, whom both poet and artist have strived to affirm. To hold this book is to feel joy.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
