The Poet's Journey

In a far away land under the coconut palms, there was a quiet little house by the sea.  It had old boards that creaked when the wind whistled through them.  It had small rooms that filled with sunshine on sunny days and moonlight on cloudless nights.  Sometimes the roof leaked a little rain.  And it had a young poet...

This charming tale, written by Amirthi Mohanraj and illustrated by Kat Beyer, is the story of a young poet who sets out on a journey to find poetry. With the guidance of two ravens, the help of a few magical creatures, and a strong dose of determination, the young poet adventures in the wide world, finding more than she ever expected.
