Poetry Friday Roundup is hosted today at Language, Literacy, Love.

My offering is Absolutely Wild written by Dennis Webster and illustrated by his daughter, Kim Webster Cunningham. This collection of 16 poems celebrating a variety of wild animals will appeal to fans of Ogden Nash or Edward Lear. The illustrations - hand-colored linoleum prints - provide the perfect complement to the text.

Friday's Famous First: Can you identify the title and author of this first line? "The afternoon Hillary first saw the elf village, she couldn't believe her eyes."
