Synopsis : “Jane Yolen is the Hans Christian Andersen of America” -Newsweek

Welcome to the Midnight Circus – and watch your step. The dark imaginings of fantasy icon Jane Yolen are not for the faint of heart. In these sixteen brilliantly unnerving tales and poems, Central Park becomes a carnival where you can – but probably shouldn’t – transform into a wild beast. The Red Sea will be deadly to cross due to a plague of voracious angels. Meanwhile, the South Pole is no place for even a good man, regardless of whether he is living or dead.

Wicked, solemn, and chilling, the circus is ready for your visit – just don’t arrive late.

 

Avis : A VENIR

I don’t want to give a mark to this book because I feel like I’m not the one who should mark it.

This is a beautiful book, the photographs are great and create an atmosphere while the reader is perusing The Spirit of Botany. They are immersed in kind of another world, a world I couldn’t fully enter. Not because I didn’t want to, but because I was ill-at-ease at times.

Actually, I think this book is not what I expected. Maybe I thought it would look like Floriography: An Illustrated Guide to the Victorian Language of Flowers, a book I adored! But The Spirit of Botany is far more personal and it made me uncomfortable for some reasons.

Despite that, I learnt a lot and I’m thinking about learning more about essential oils! The book is well presented, clear, and the author explains every step of the recipes carefully, always giving warnings when needed and saying why this must be done this or that way.

I’m going out of this read wanting to know more, but still convinced I kind of missed something here.
