"When Joni Mitchell wrote songs, her lyrics told stories. When she sang, her music spoke truth. But before composing more than two hundred songs, Joni was a young girl from a town in the Canadian prairie, where she learned to love dancing, painting, birdsong, and piano. As she grew up into an artist, Joni took her strong feelings. - feelings of love and frustration, the pain of having polio, and the turbulence that came with being a young woman - and wrote them into vivid songs."
From the jacket cover of Selina Alko's book. We're loving this book, from it's collaged illustrations covered in Joni lyrics to it's beautiful way of telling Joni's story - you'll find yourself singing the songs as you move through her life story.
