Poetry. Artwork by Emilie Clark. "Lisa Jarnot writes the meter of everything in A PRINCESS MAGIC PRESTO SPELL. As she does this, she reminds us what matters. In case you don't know, it is the small animals and the plum trees and the mothers of friends and the moon and her dreams. This book is funny and yet also is an elegy. I read it. And then I read it several more times because I didn't want it to end. It is that lovely."—Juliana Spahr
