Side by Side: New Poems ed. by Jan Greenberg

In this collection of poetry, Greenberg collected poetry from all over the world that was inspired by works of art. Many of the poems are printed in both the native language and English and all are accompanied by the art that inspired it. At least one language (Tigrinya) I had to look up because I had never heard of it (it's spoken in Eritrea). The artwork is lovely, the poems are nice. I just don't see this book having a lot of teen appeal. I vote nay.
