A powerful poetry picture book about the wonder and possibility contained in a single word: let.
Suppose there was a book full only of the word let . . .
Adapted from a poem called “Book of Genesis” by the award-winning poet Kei Miller and beautifully imagined and illustrated by Diana Ejaita, this provocative and hopeful picture book is an ode to the power of words and of books—of seeing oneself and being seen—and to a world of wonder and possibility.
Kei Miller is an award-winning essayist, novelist, and poet. His poem “Book of Genesis” is from his collection There Is an Anger That Moves. In addition to writing, he is a professor of English and creative writing and a fellow of the Royal Society of Literature. He divides his time between Jamaica and the United Kingdom.

Diana Ejaita works as an illustrator and textile designer in Berlin. What sets her illustrations apart is a combination of dramatically contrasting areas of black and white with soft patterns and textures that create images that betray the strength of femininity. Born in Cremona, with Nigerian origins, her aesthetic pays homage to her lineage.
