Words With Wings

Words with Wings

by Nikki Grimes

Words With Wings is a captivating, beautifully written work of fiction by Nikki Grimes that conveys an entire novel’s worth of events, emotions, and milestones through a series of short illuminating poems. In this novel, daydreamer Gabby navigates her now unfamiliar life at a new apartment and a new school after her parents divorce. Gabby gets lost in her remarkable and lively daydreams, often, very often! While this tends to cause trouble, she does have a daydreamer’s unexpected supporter on her side, her nurturing teacher Mr. Spicer. Who, by the way, is based on a real life teacher who encourages his students to daydream and capture those dreams on paper!
