Tiger, Tiger, Burning Bright!

Publisher: Nosy Crow

Poems about scary animals like the alligator, the tiger or the piranha; poems about familiar, domestic animals such as the dog; teeny, tiny animals like the ant and the flea; huge animals like the elephant; exotic animals such as the pelican and the anteater and endangered animals like the polar bear. All these, and more, are presented in a cloth-bound, hardback, gift book published in association with the National Trust.

This substantial collection of verse from around the world has an animal poem for every day of the year and is stunningly illustrated in full colour to reflect each animal, its habitat and essential characteristics.

Featuring household names such as Roger McGough and Lewis Carroll, as well as lesser-known poets, the anthology spans 400 years from William Shakespeare to Ftoun Abou Kerech, a teenage refugee from Syria.

With contributors from 22 countries, this is a truly global representation of animal life in all its diversity and wonder and a great addition to any school or home library.
