"his rewarding safari will brighten a year of bedtimes and lodge in the minds of children for a lifetime"

 This hefty collection — a thing of visual and verbal beauty — contains an animal poem for every day of the year. Waters has chosen brief and arresting verses from an extraordinary range of sources, from haiku to clerihew, from Shakespeare to George Szirtes, to engender a love of language as well as an appreciation of animals. Teckentrup’s atmospheric scenes fill the background of every handsome page, evoking the changing seasons, with creatures in natural settings cut from sharply graphic, richly textured shapes. As the publisher’s introduction says, “Poems leave funny spaces on the page that give you room to think"
