Zoooo...: Living Poems for Children by Hugh David Loxdale
Zoooo...: Living Poems for Children by Hugh David Loxdale
5.0 out of 5 stars Zoooo..., 17 Jun 2013
From the elephant to the slug, the kangaroo to the warty newt, Hugh Loxdale's first collection of poems for children includes creatures large and small from across the globe. Exquisite line drawings by Rita Mühlbauer capture the character of each of the animals that feature.

Hugh's poems are written to make children giggle, marvel and wonder at the natural world, and to understand it that bit better too (including, importantly, why it's wise not to stand too close to an elephant!) It's all beautifully presented in a 7x7" hardback book that sits satisfyingly in the hand, light enough to hold, heavy enough to treasure.
