Thunder Underground Illust. by Josée Masse On List of Notable Poetry Books for Children

25 Jul 2018

Congratulations to Josée Masse, who illustrated Thunder Underground, which is included in a column entitled “Children’s Literature Reviews: 2017 Notable Poetry Books for Children” that appears in the July issue of the NCTE journal, Language Arts. While inclusion on this list is an honor in itself, there’s also a lovely description of the book provided, which highlights Masse’s artistic contribution to the project. The author remarks that “Josée Masse’s mixed-media illustrations offer a visual adventure, including colorful cross-sections of what lies underground. Notably, Masse chooses to feature a boy and girl of different races across most of the scenes in this poetic journey.” Featuring poetry by Jane Yolen, this picture book takes young readers on an unforgettable expedition you won’t want to miss out on.
