This diverse collection of animal poems is brought to life by Eric Carle’s vivid torn paper collage illustrations.   Seals, butterflies, purcupines, pelicans, yaks, birds, horses–you name it and the animal has probably found a place in this book.  Distinguished poets like Lewis Carroll, Ogden Nash, Jack Prelutsky, and more are featured, along with Japanese haiku, Pawnee Indian proverbs, and biblical verses.  This is a great book for adults and kids to share, and all readers will enjoy the plethora of animal poetry and fanciful illustrations in this volume.
