The wiggling tails of lambs in spring; the chirruping song of crickets in summer; first two or three, then ten ducks hurrying your way in winter, "as if pulled by a string"... Nicola Davies skillfully interweaves fact and fiction in nine keenly observant poems, which celebrate a child's first animal encounters. Originally appearing in the award-winning collection A First Book of Nature, Hearld’s richly-textured, nostalgic illustrations are the perfect accompaniment to her words, and are reproduced here in full colour. With a space inside the jacket for you to write your own message, this pocket-sized poetry pamphlet is the perfect present for any time of year – and comes inside a packet including an envelope, ready for popping in the post!

Suitable for readers aged 5-12 years.

Author: Nicola Davies, with illustrations by Mark Hearld.
