About Book

Right from the start he is dressed in his best – his blacks and his whites.
Little Fauntleroy – quiffed and glossy,
A Sunday suit, a wedding natty get-up,
Standing in dunged straw

For older readers than the first two volumes of Collected Animal Poems, animal life is seen afresh through the diversity and imaginative energy of this collected volume.
