This October, Random House re-released the 1987 picture book adaptation of e.e. cummings’s poem, “little tree,” illustrated by author and artist Deborah Kogan Ray. (It was also released as a paperback edition in 1994.) Here’s the low-down.
This re-printing makes me happy, as it’s always been one of my favorite holiday picture books. Today, Deborah is sharing two images from it, and I thank her.
Merry Christmas Eve from 7-Imp . . .
you are so little / you are more like a flower”
