(Simon & Schuster, 2008)

This book has many classic poems, each illustrated by well-known illustrators.  The book itself has a title index, an author/poet index, and an index of first lines.  However, an index of the various illustrators is missing.  Connecting each illustrator's poems to the books each has illustrated might provide an excellent connection to the illustrator's other work and a source for sharing information about various art mediums.

For the purposes of this index, I am including only the thirteen illustrators' names and the page numbers where each artist's illustrations appear.  Users will need to access the actual pages in the book to ascertain which poem and poet the illustrator has illustrated.
