Eighteen animal poems are paired with wonderfully detailed cut paper collage illustrations.
What I thought: Pug & Other Animal Poems will be a perfect addition to any animal themed storytime or event. I'm adding it to the lineup for my next Animal Poetry Break storytime and Animal Antics Pajama Party. My favorite poems are rabbits and dachshund. This is the first collection I've read by Valerie Worth and I like her style. Steve Jenkins illustrations are fabulous as usual.
