"Reading World of Wonders, it's clear that Nezhukumtathil is a poet. These essays sing with joy and longing—each focusing on a different natural wonder, all connected by the thread of Nezhukumtathil's curiosity and her identification with the world's beautiful oddities . . . It's a heartwarming, poignant, and often funny collection, enlivened by Fumi Nakamura's dreamy illustrations." —BuzzFeed, "Summer Books You Won't Be Able to Put Down"
