In this meditative and nicely paced poetry collection subtitled ‘Little Poems Big Ideas Mindful of Nature’, the poet presents beautiful snapshots of the natural world and has thought carefully about the form for each. The poems, which are both contemplative and playful, are complemented by gently humorous illustrations that use an unusual and effective muted limited palette and are sometimes surreal in their personification of animals and insects.
