Enormous Smallness is a non-fiction picture book about the poet E.E. Cummings. His life is presented in a way that will make children curious about him and will lead them to play with words and ask plenty of questions as well. Lively and informative, the books also presents some of Cummings’s most powerful poems, integrating them seamlessly into the story to give the reader the music of his voice and a spirited, sensitive introduction to his poetry. In keping with the epigraph of the book “It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are”, Matthew Burgess’s narrative emphasizes the bravery it takes to follow one’s own vision and the encouragement E.E. received to do just that.
