Black Stars in a White Night Sky receives a starred review
Kirkus Reviews gives JonArno Lawson's newest title, Black Stars in a White Night Sky, a starred review in its January 15, 2008 issue. The review reads:
"Staid design masks a terrific collection of poetic surprises... Displaying an uncommon ear for sound-play, Lawson also introduces a range of quirky characters... Tjia's monochromatic wash illustrations generally interpret these sparklers literally, but sometimes take imaginative leaps of their own. ...the poet's voice and sensibility are clear and consistent in this above-average gathering."
