The subtitle of this book is 'An animal poem for every day of the year'. It's a simple idea and a brilliant one, and it's resulted in this most sumptuous book - satisfyingly huge and beautifully coloured.
There's a vast variety of poems. Some are short, simple, and funny; others are much more complex. But I don't think it would matter if the poem for one day might be a bit difficult or a bit simple, because there would be more than enough in the illustrations to evoke discussion, admiration, wonder. It will make a most marvellous present. The cover price is £25, but it's widely available at £16-17.
I don't think I need to say any more: I'll just show you some examples.
The book is an absolute treat.
