Poems by Conrad Aiken (1889-1973), United States Poet Laureate from 1950 to 1952 and winner of the 1930 Pulitzer Prize for Poetry. Illustrated by the iconic graphic artist Milton Glaser (1929-2020).

''The poet Aiken offers children a book of 16 elegant animal poems, all startling, humorous, and much too enjoyable to be reserved for the nursery. Wonderfully rich, beautiful sketches, drawings and paintings illuminate the text. The whole thing vibrates with charm, artistry, and a happily audacious approach that adds up to pure joy.'' - The Atlanta Journal and The Atlanta Constitution, Oct 24, 1965.
