Dark Emperor and Other Poems of the Night
BIOGRAPHY & AUTOBIOGRAPHY / General
Acclaimed author Joyce Sidman has received multiple awards for her books of poetry, including a Caldecott Honor for Red Sings from Treetops. Itself a Newbery Honor Book, Dark Emperor & Other Poems of the Night features several spellbinding poems about “the feast of sound and spark” that awakens with the raccoons, snails, owls, and crickets each night after sunset.
“In Sidman’s delicious poems, darkness is the norm, and there’s nothing to fear but the rising sun.”—Publishers Weekly
