Wild World

Book - 2018
Rate this:
Hot, wet rainforest.
What is hidden below your green roof?
A steamy shadow-land
Of strangle-vines, scrambling
for a shaft of light,
Lush leaves searching for a
glimmer in the gloom . . .

A beautifully illustrated treasury of poems about the last wildernesses on Earth, from the crystal kingdom Arctic to the dusty savannah and the black-as-space deep sea. Stunning artwork brings 13 endangered habitats to life, while factual information at the back details the danger facing these incredible places.

Kirkus Reviews praised Wild World , saying, "McAllister's lovely, lyrical works provide fascinating perspectives on the Earth's varied--and fragile--natural habitats while inspiring mindfulness and a sense of stewardship. . . . Wild World is the perfect blend of poetry and environmentalism."
