Polar Bear, Arctic Hare: Poems of the Frozen North

Front Cover
Boyds Mills Press, 2007 - Juvenile Nonfiction - 32 pages
Renowned poet Eileen Spinelli celebrates the hardy creatures of the North in charming verse for younger readers. The Arctic may be a cold and unforgiving place, but it teems with wildlife—from the humble orange-golden bumblebee to the majestic beluga whale. These creatures are captured in poems full of fanciful wordplay and playful images, spanning the four seasons and the icy splendor of the Arctic environment. Eugenie Fernandes's beautiful, realistic renderings complement the word pictures. Curious facts about each creature are included in the back matter.
