Wild in the Streets 20 Poems of City Animals

Wild in the Streets 20 Poems of City Animals

Author: Marilyn Singer Format: Hardback Release Date: 03/09/2019

This beautifully illustrated book pairs poetry with non-fiction, telling the fascinating stories of the animals who have found homes in our city landscapes across the world, from the pythons traveling Singapore's sewers to the monkeys living in India's temples. Humans may have built towns and cities, but we aren't the only ones who live in them. Given the smallest chance - a park, a garden, a window box; a basement, a subway tunnel, a bridge - wildlife manages to survive in the city. Among colourful illustrated pages buzzing with city life and animal activity, you'll discover the host of wild animals who live among humans: butterflies, bats, spiders, honeybees, coyotes and more. Each animal's story is told through a short poem accompanied by an informational paragraph. Some poems are comical, some poignant, and all make the reader see the world in a different way. After a rousing exploration of animal life, find definitions of the various types of poetry forms used in the book: haiku, cinquain, sonnet, terza rima, villanelle, triolet, reverso, acrostic and free verse. Look around - you may discover neighbours you didn't know you had!
