Children's Poet Laureate


Viking, 1976.

Illustrated by Victoria Chess.

In witty, informative verse all kinds of bugs, including crickets, centipedes, ants, and even mosquitoes, are transformed into surprisingly sympathetic creatures. These poems, some funny, some serious, pay tribute to our often misunderstood neighbors. Illustrated with humorously macabre drawings, this collection may persuade you to like them - at least a little!
