Review: A Slice of Snow: A Book of Poems by Joan Walsh Anglund

Synopsis: A small collection of poems with illustrations accompanied by tiny illustrations in ink

Review: I enjoy small terse poems, so I was certain I would enjoy this collection of poems. Sadly, I didn't. The poems seemed emo, trite and cliched. They rang of something you would find on cheesy plagues and mugs. Which makes sense. Anglund is known for her illustrations - which I did enjoy - and often pairs her art and poetry. In the end, I'm sure many people would enjoy this small book, but I found it just a bit cliched for my taste.
