The Raucous Auk
A Menagerie of Poems
Viking • 1973 • 48 pages • ISBN: 978-0-6705-8848-0
Poems about big animals, familiar and exotic: the elephant, the whale, the bandicoot (who’s fond of fruit), the ocelot (who knows-a lot). The lyrical grazing gazelle, the tongue-twisting litter of little black foxes, the flaming flamingo – they all romp through these pages with style and spirit. Illustrated to perfection by Joseph Low.
