Description
"A shaggy species is the yak / With hairy front and hairy back. / It isn't very hard to spot him / With hairy top and hairy bottom. / He doesn't mind that he's so shaggy, / If he wore pants, he'd like them baggy. / His coat's a frightful mess, and yet / You'd dress as he does, in Tibet." Reminiscent of the delightful animal doggerel of Ogden Nash, these clever odes to the yak and the gnu, the puffin and the platypus, and a dozen other strange and funny creatures were written as presents from crossword puzzle enthusiast and copywriter Dennis Webster to his animal-loving daughter Kim. Over the years she kept them close, and after she grew up and became an illustrator, Kim created hand-colored linocut prints and borders as settings for her father's poems, presented here in a book for all ages.
