Some animals are homebodies,

Like tortoises and snails.

Their heads stick out their front doors,

Out their back doors flick their tails.

Belongings go along with them

No matter where they roam,

And you can visit anytime-

There's always someone home.

From tongue-in-cheek sonnets to lyrical free verse, Susan Blackaby's poems explore the many kinds of homes animals make for themselves. Jaime Hogan's expressive line art is perfect complements to this clever collection of habitat poems. Extensive back matter provides intriguing information on animal habitats and the ins and outs of writing poetry.
