A new poetry collection illustrated by the incomparable Michael Hague

Do you know what a spider wishes for? 
No rain. Many flies. Gentle feet that take no notice of one so small.
That's all.

How about a sheep?  In this ode to animals big and small, furry and slimy, airborne, aquatic, and land loving, a variety of poems celebrate the lives of animals. Beautifully illustrated with lavish paintings by Michael Hague, this playful collection is a perfect read for animal lovers of all ages.
