Corn-Fed: Poems

James Stevenson. Greenwillow Books, $15.95 (48pp) ISBN 978-0-06-000597-9

Fans of James Stevenson's Popcorn and Just Around the Corner will find much to feast upon in Corn-Fed, the latest installment in his breezy series of illustrated poetry. Stevenson turns everyday observances into insightful kernels of truth: ""Once a bike has discovered What it's like To run fast and free, It just might try to escape,"" he writes alongside pen-and-ink and watercolor wash vignettes of locked-up bicycles.
