Cute black
fruit snack.
Pick some,
lick thumbs.
The Poet Wolf loves to write pithy verse in the pine forest, but his forest friends see not a poet, but a hungry wolf. That is, until they listen to his lovely poems about life in the woods and discover that behind this apex predator is a sensitive soul who prefers to eat not his furry fellow creatures, but crisp pears.
Bob Raczka is a children’s book author and poet. He has written several picture books about art and poetry, including Guyku and Like Best Friends, published by Cameron Kids. He lives in Chicago. Kristen and Kevin Howdeshell are a husband-and-wife illustration team based in Kansas City. This is their debut picture book for Cameron Kids.
