This delightful two-part collection of poems about zoo animals written by the poet and 50 children is the result of a poetry outreach project in which poet Paula Green took some children through the zoo and asked them to describe the animals while concentrating on different aspects of writing poetry. This delightful collection of poems bring to lige all the animals of the zoo through energetic rhythms and sparkling images as the animals roar, squeal, lope, lie, splash, and munch. Vibrant illustrations enliven every page, the introduction is fluent and insightful, and the extended glossary of items from the "poetry toolkit"—poetic terms, techniques, devices and forms—is illustrated with zoo poem examples.
