Twenty-four poems correspond to twenty-four animals in this collection of poems aimed at children. Ted Hughes pumps meaning and personality into each of the Northern birds and beasts while Leonard Baskin’s illustrations convey a deep respect for the animals in reference. ( )

Ted Hughes delicately writes delicately accurate poetic descriptions of each animal found on the unforgiving Alaskan landscape. The beautifully darkened watercolor illustrations give it a dramatic essence as the reader scans through the text. ( )
