Your A School Year of Poems book is a huge disappointment!!!!! All I know is my mother wrote the poem on page 68 at the age of 10 in 1945. Her aunt sent her award winning (from her school) poem to a publisher and never heard back. We have the authentic original pencil written paper with it dated, graded and signed. We also have the original letter submitted in 1945 accompanying the submission. This Edith Hadley Butterfield person is claiming to be the original author and I can't believe it. She changed several of the words but the poem is obviously stolen. Great Job of authenticating authors Walter Barbe. We will be publishing a new book with another publisher with the origina lAUTHENTIC author. Highlights just lost a long time respected customer. I and my huge family will never buy another book from them.
