    A nice collection of poems, some better than others obviously. A quick read, I took it to work as something to read on my short breaks. Recommend it for anyone who likes poems, or wants to get into reading poems.

    This is a wonderful little handbook filled with poems about almost any animal you can think of. Rats, dogs, elephants, bees, etc. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys poetry and animals!

    Some new favourites in here for me, I think - and good material for classes I'm teaching.Nice, also, to be reminded of Rab Burns' less twee poetry (I'm not a fan of the Haggis poem.)
