Review

"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
