Description

Twenty–nine poems about spring are illustrated with Douglas Florian's distinctive and buoyant watercolours and extol the many virtues of the season–from those muddy puddles and emerging bulbs to rain showers and rainbows and that first day without mittens. Concrete poems, humour, ingenious wordplay, and audience appeal make this a consummate companion to the acclaimed poet's first three seasonal collections.
