Life Doesn't Frighten Me

  • €17.00

Initially published 25 years ago, Life Doesn't Frighten Me is a collaboration between two total legends, Maya Angelou and the painter Jean-Michel Basquiat. Aimed at kids and adults alike, the book consists of words by author and civil rights activist, Maya Angelou, blended with the brave imagery of the late artist Basquiat, to create this stirring children's book. The words are a simple and repetitive poem, written from a child's perspective about things in her life that she has to overcome to move on. Basquiat's dark and powerful images reinforce the idea that, despite what we encounter in life, we do not have to be afraid. Life Doesn't Frighten Me shows us there is a way to overcome fear. It's a beautiful, encapsulating book that will be treasured for many more years to come.

Hardback, 27.5 x 22 cm approx.

Life Doesn't Frighten Me
Shadows on the wall
Noises down the hall
Life doesn't frighten me at all

Bad dogs barking loud
Big ghosts in a cloud
Life doesn't frighten me at all

Mean old Mother Goose
Lions on the loose
They don't frighten me at all

Dragons breathing flame
On my counterpane
That doesn't frighten me at all.

I go boo
Make them shoo
I make fun
Way they run
I won't cry
So they fly
I just smile
They go wild

Life doesn't frighten me at all.
