Predator and Prey: A Conversation in Verse

(2) K-3 Illustrated by Bert Kitchen. Buhrman-Deever imagines the relationships between predators and prey as poetic standoffs. Animal antagonists express their behaviors and needs in a variety of creative poetic formats. Content and cadence are cleverly aligned with the actual behaviors of the animals, and the structure and layouts of the poems also echo traits of the creatures. Illustrations are in soft focus, with stippled green and brown landscapes. Bib.
