  • For Knock at a Star:
    "Charming, delightful, witty, a treasure of a book - the superlatives come easily on inspection of this anthology." - The Washington Post
    "If any book can win young readers to poetry, this one can, for there's not a poem in it that isn't a chuckle, a scare, or an illumination." - School Library Journal
    "Fresh in both selection and presentation, this includes more than 150 poems, most of them uncommon to anthologies. There is in most of the poems a combination of brevity with depth of feeling or a twist of invention that takes the reader by surprise." - Booklist
    "The Kennedys have assembled a remarkably unassuming and accessible collection." - Kirkus
