A Strange Place to Call Home
Publisher: Chronicle Books
In the deepest and darkest of caves, blind fish navigate effortlessly through the water. Petroleum flies hatch in oil; mountain goats reside on icy, windswept peaks; and limpets cling on to rocks battered and buffeted by the waves. Despite their hostile environments these creatures survive and persist.
This wonderful collection of poems explores nature’s miracles: creatures who thrive in some of the world’s most hostile places. Beautifully written and boldly illustrated by artist Ed Young, children can discover fascinating facts in this captivating collection which also includes information on each species in the endnotes. A lovely book to read aloud and share.
