by Edward Francisco and Mallory Dillon
What happens when a prize-winning poet and a dazzlingly gifted nine-year-old illustrator collaborate on a children’s book?
Mallory’s World from A to Z is a collection of smart and appealing alphabet poems illustrated by the poet’s great niece, a blond-haired ball of energy and art student named Mallory. Mallory lives on a farm and the zoo is one of Ed’s favorite haunts, so many of the poems are about their favorite animals. Sometimes Ed worked from Mallory’s drawings, but usually Mallory drew from Ed’s poems.
Inspired by poet laureate Richard Wilbur’s Opposites series, the mnemonic qualities of the poems and the whimsical illustrations will make this collection memorable for children and their parents and caregivers alike.
