In The Wild
by David Elliott, illus. by Holly Meade
From the lion standing alone on the African savannah to the panda in a bamboo forest, from the rhinoceros with its boot-like face to the Arctic polar bear disappearing in the snow, the earth is full of curious and wonderful animals, each more extraordinary than the next. David Elliott’s pithy, lyrical verse and Holly Meade’s stunning woodcut and watercolor illustrations reveal a world of remarkable beauty and wonder— and offer an enticing introduction to both favorite animals and poetic forms.
Recommended for ages four to seven.
