Twosomes: Love Poems from the Animal Kingdomby Lee Wildish
Synopses & Reviews
Do animals celebrate Valentine's Day? Nobody knows for sure. But this funny (and punny) little book imagines how some of them declare their love, affection, or friendship any day of the year.Nice to Meetcha Yousmell delish /Wanna share my water dish? So asks one tail-thumping dog to another. Whereas a courting dolphin sings, Come, leap with me and be my wife./You're the porpoise of my life. Ranging from dogs and cats andother pets to some you wouldn't want to pet, such as sharks and porcupines, acclaimed poet Marilyn Singer's captivating couplets and Lee Wildish's expressively humorous illustrations provide a Valentine's Day gift for kidswho wouldn't be caught dead being lovey-dovey.
From the Hardcover edition.
Presents a collection of humorous Valentine's day poems for animals including, dogs, cats, sharks, and porcupines.
