Star New Zealand poet Paula Green has teamed up with illustrator Jenny Cooper and collated a marvellous menagerie of animal poems to show just how fun poetry can be. In between the covers of this book, you will meet creatures large and small. They might pad, skitter, swoosh or soar. They could be fuzzy, feathery, suckery, scaly or spiky. These animals might ROAR or squeak or Purrrrrrrrrr. Just like the animals they’re about, these poems come in all shapes and sizes! They tell stories, pose questions, make us feel things – and they all make glorious music.
