It's not every book of poems that crosses over the grown-up/child divide - but this is one that does so beautifully. For those who love the animal world in all its diversity it contains a wealth of delight. Elegant poetry sits alongside interesting facts, enhanced by charming illustrations. The subjects of Liz's gentle poems are endangered species, as the subtitle 'Poems on a disappearing World' suggests. Read, enjoy, learn. Then read the magically evocative words again and again: a book to treasure.
