Animal Acrostics   by David M. Hummon    Illustrated by Michael S. Maydak

Animal Acrostics is idea for both nature lovers and wordsmiths. It is a unique celebration of animals through word play. Often humorous, always fun, an acrostic poem combines fact, imagery, and the name of the animal. It says something true about the animal in a kind of riddle that plays with the animal's name and its special qualities, too. These 50-plus acrostic poems are a tribute to animals of five habitats: the African savanna, the tropical rain forest, the ocean, and the North American plains and forest. Instructive pages of tips encourage readers to engage in their own wordplay.
