"I wrote over twenty different tiger poems until I had one I liked.
Clearly, this animal didn’t want to to be captured by the likes of me." David Elliott


In the Wild
by David Elliott
Mockingbird Award Book
TLA Award Book

The lion "has his pride." The elephant ... "like a cloud" ... powerful, yet "delicate as lace." Who is that "tree topper?" Who is "a magician?" How does alphabetical order describe the difference between an antelope and a zebra?

David Elliott brings gorgeous wild animals to life with his poetry that entertains and amazes, using powerful puns and distinctive literary devices in In the Wild. Showcased in Holly Meade's awesome woodcuts and watercolors, this poetry collection will not only delight young readers but will also stretch their skills with high-powered vocabulary.

In the Wild introduces youngsters to skillful poetry in its celebration of a variety of earth's wildest and most profoundly beautiful animals. Students will enjoy looking for the quirks in language and discussing the way the author uses literary devices to draw attention to their unusual traits. No classroom collection or library is complete without this book.
