The Proper Way to Meet a Hedgehog: And Other How-To Poems

(2) K-3 Illustrated by Richard Jones. The thirty-three poems in this anthology range from the whimsical (Monica Shannon's "How to Tell Goblins from Elves") to the practical (April Halprin Wayland's "How to Ride a New Bike"). Each is genuine poetry and not a didactic lesson, with rhythm, expression, and evocative phrases. Digitally edited paintings capture the tone and feeling of each piece while still being unified overall with color choices, soft edges, and keen observations of nature.
