From Publishers Weekly The inventive Anne Wilson (The Owl and the Pussycat, reviewed in Children's
Forecasts, Mar. 10) brings her exuberant mixed-media collages to the
Twenty-third Psalm in The Lord Is My Shepherd. Childlike in their direct and
immediate appeal, the illustrations reflect sophisticated printmaking
techniques. Tiny, multi-ethnic figures journey against abstract backgrounds
harmoniously composed of vividly patterned shapes and swirls, capturing-and
transmitting-a sense of the psalmist's unalloyed joy. Copyright 2003 Reed
