The newest illustrated poetry collection in bestselling author Judith Viorst’s “decade” series, explores with wisdom and humor, what it means to be an impending nonagenarian. Accompanied by Laura Gibson’s whimsical illustrations, Nearing Ninety’s amusing and touching reflections make this collection relatable to readers of all ages.

In the new book, the beloved author shares “the complicated joys and everyday tribulations that await us at the age of 90, all with a large dose of humor and an understanding that nothing—well, almost nothing—in life should be taken too seriously.”
