Pablo Neruda: Poet of the People

By Monica Brown
Illustrated by Julie Pashkis
Published by Henry Holt and Company, 2011
Neftali loved words and surrounded himself with words from a young age. His father disapproved of his writing and so he started publishing his work under then name Pablo Neruda at the age of 16. He wrote about the people of Chile and their struggles.
Great for middle and high school English classes when studying poetry. This beautiful book uses the words in his poetry to illustrate the book in a marvelous way.
