Do you know what a spider wishes for?
No rain. Many flies. Gentle feet that take no notice of one so small.
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.
Michael Hague has illustrated some of the best-loved works of children's literature, including The Velveteen Rabbit, The Wizard of Oz, Peter Pan, and The Teddy Bears' Picnic.
