Sister Fox's Field Guide to the Writing Life
by Jane Yolen




Overview -
Sister Fox knows so many secrets: why the chickadee sings in the lilac bush, where the best places are to bark at the moon, and how to see an owl on a winter night. Sister Fox even knows the secret of how to catch poems and stories. She knows how to tell from their plumage where poems are coming from and where they might be heading. She's learned through long practice when to chase her tail and when to scan the sky for a song. And in this book, Sister Fox will whisper those secrets to you-if you believe her. Bestselling author Jane Yolen brings us this delightful new collection of poems on the art and craft of writing. Sometimes whimsical, often amusing, and always a wonder and a delight, SISTER FOX'S FIELD GUIDE TO THE WRITING LIFE showcases Yolen at her finest poetic form, ably complimented by Laura Rae's sensitive illustrations. From the goodhumoured, earthy wisdom of "The Muse Speaks," to the snappish introspection of "Keep on Singing," to the sparkling magic of "The Storyteller," these are poems that enchant and dazzle and amuse. They linger in the mind and colour the imagination long after Sister Fox has closed the book. This is a collection no writer, poet, or lover of words should be without.
