Book Review: Musings, Moments, and Misadventures by Gina C. Browning
Poet and author Gina C. Browning has put together a beautiful collection of poems about everyday life in Musings, Moments and Misadventures. Over 15 poems appear in this collection of stories about childhood pets, friends, love of home, nature, and more.
I admired Browning's work in her rhyming children's picture book, Moonbeam Dreams. Here, she takes her ability to string together words in a lyrical fashion and blends them with her stunning artwork to create a collection that adults will enjoy. From "Phystie, the Goose" to "Wishes," Browning's prose celebrates those everyday moments and misadventures that can easily be taken for granted.
Like her words, her artwork for Musings, Moments, and Misadventures is simple, yet beautiful. Colorful birds, glorious sunsets, and twisty water rides are just some of the illustrations readers will find within the pages of this lovely collection. This is a book you'll prefer to display rather than tuck into your bookshelf.
