The Dreamer - by Pam Munoz Ryan & Peter Sis
This book is a physical pleasure to read. Peter Sis filled it with amazing drawings in his typical pointillistic style, which is as much a selling point as the writing. Poetry is mixed in throughout the chapters, and there is a short collection of Neruda's poetry at the end. The writing is in dark green ink, Neruda's favorite color to write in, which is unusual and strangely calming to read. This is such a wonderful book, it makes me happy just to think about it, which is something.
