Product description

Review

"Anchored by her musings, Lowry's plaintive, compassionate memoir honors the legacy of those lost in the attack that precipitated the United States' entry into World War II."--New York Times Book Review

"A slim volume that's packed with emotion."--Wall Street Journal

"Lois Lowry has had an impressive career. She's written more than 40 books and won the Newbery Medal twice, but she's never written a story in verse until now."--NPR Weekend Edition

"With vignettes about those who lost their lives--from sailors aboard the USS Arizona to civilians in Hiroshima--Lowry asks young readers to empathize with people on all sides of the conflict.... Lowry's message is simple: We all benefit from a more peaceful world."--TIME for Kids

★ "On the Horizon's remarkable poems are a powerful reminder of our shared humanity in times of conflict and war. Simply put, they are an extraordinary gift from one of America's most distinguished writers."--BookPage, STARRED review

★ "[On the Horizon is] deeply felt and emotive, not about sides but about people, sure to lead readers to think deeply on these dual tragedies of war. A must for all collections."--Booklist, STARRED review

★ "All the personal stories--of sailors, civilians, and Lowry herself--are grounding.... Pak's graphite illustrations are like still shots of history, adding to the emotion and somber feeling. A beautiful, powerful reflection on a tragic history."--Kirkus, STARRED review

★ "On the Horizon's remarkable poems are a powerful reminder of our shared humanity in times of conflict and war. Simply put, they are an extraordinary gift from one of America's most distinguished writers."--BookPage, STARRED review

"Part memoir, part history, this is a powerful reminder that damage done will be remembered for many decades to come." -Publishers Weekly

"This series of beautiful, moving, and sometimes horrifying poems gives a voice to the young men on the USS Arizona and offers an equally moving tribute to the survivors of Hiroshima....touching."--School Library Journal

"[E]ntries... are deft and compelling.... and the experience of being an occupier in post-war Japan is a fraught and interesting one." --The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

About the Author

Whether she’s writing comedy, adventure, or poignant, powerful drama—from Attaboy, Sam! and Anastasia Krupnik to Number the Stars and The GiverLois Lowry’s appeal is as broad as her subject matter and as deep as her desire to affect an eager generation of readers. An author who is “fast becoming the Beverly Cleary for the upper middle grades” (The Horn Book Magazine), Lois Lowry has written more than 20 books for young adults and is a two-time Newbery Medal winner.Lowry was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, and attended junior high school in Tokyo, Japan. Her father was a dentist for the U.S. Army and his job entailed a lot of traveling. She still likes to travel.At the age of 17, Lowry attended Brown University and majored in writing. She left school at 19, got married, and had four children before her 25th birthday. After some time, she returned to college and received her undergraduate degree from the University of Maine.Lowry didn’t start writing professionally until she was in her mid-30s. Now she spends time writing every single day. Before she begins a book, she usually knows the beginning and end of her story. When she’s not writing, Lowry enjoys gardening during the spring and summer and knitting during the winter. One of her other hobbies is photography, and her own photos grace the covers of Number the Stars, The Giver, and Gathering Blue. Lois Lowry has four children and two grandchildren. She lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts. --This text refers to the audioCD edition.
