In the follow-up to the well-received "Animal Poems, Pug: And Other Animal Poems" examines a wide range of animal behavior, from the fleetingness of a fly sipping spilled milk to the constant steely presence of a powerful bull; the greedy meal of a street rat to a cat's quiet gift of a dead mouse on the doorstep. Steve Jenkins's bright collage art brings these small moments to life.
A Margaret Ferguson Book.
