Praise For…

"Onionskin endpapers are a nice touch to an introduction to the Chilean poet who paid tribute to familiar objects."

"Sala's exuberant illustrations are playful and colorful . . . a sweet story about the creative process."

"Children who love words should warm to Alexandria Giardino's ODE TO AN ONION: Pablo Neruda & His Muse . . . In Felicita Sala’s vivacious and beautifully detailed drawings, done in colored pencil, Mathilde’s smile and Pablo’s glum expression give a tender humor to this real-life relationship."
