Sometimes, the best way to say something is also the briefest. “Hillary Clinton Haiku,” written by Clinton Hill-based author Vera G. Shaw and illustrated by Emmy Reis, distills the essential details of Hillary Clinton into 17-syllable bursts where thousands of articles and biographies fall short — or, rather, long.

Covering all things Hillary in a series of more than 70 haikus, the book begins with Hillary’s childhood and concludes with Hill as a presidential hopeful.

With Hillary-themed illustrations — blackberries and scrunchies abound — and a glossary of terms to guide political newbies, “Hillary Clinton Haiku” is poised to be the go-to source for poetry loving Hillary-philes.
