National Geographic Book of Animal Poetry
National Geographic Book of Animal Poetry
(Based on 5 reviews)
Category: Books/Kids Books and Atlases/Animals and Nature

"Out of a windless August night
A luna moth in ghostly light
Beat softly on my window screen
Tick-tick-ticking-all silver green.
She whispered secrets in my ear—
I am but a stranger here.
The stars are scrawled across the sky/By ghostwriters, the Moon and I.
You will not see me here tonight—/I have a thousand stars to write.”

(Based on 1 review)
Category: Books/Kids Books and Atlases/Animals and Nature

Jack Landon, 12, and his younger sister, Ashley, accompany their veterinarian mother and photographer father to Yellowstone Park. Mrs. Landon has been called in to investigate an incident in which a hunting dog was purportedly chased onto park land and killed by a pack of wolves. The family dynamics are complicated by Troy, a troubled teen who is in the temporary foster care of the Landons. Due to miscommunication and unforseen circumstances, the young people end up spending a freezing night alone in the wild. Arrogant and condescending, Jack tries to assume control of the group, but Troy has his own agenda. Ashley, annoyed by her brother's attitude, asserts herself, and Jack finds that he must cooperate rather than dominate. The kids witness the shooting of a wolf and fear that the armed man may still be around. Throughout the night, they stay with the wounded wolf around a fire and talk and tell stories. In the morning, they are rescued and each has been affected by the ordeal. The wolf is saved and the mystery of the stalker is solved. This exciting book emphasizes the natural beauty and dangers of the wild. It includes several pages of full-color photos and facts about the Wolf Restoration Project and the nature of wolves.
