Poetry Friday

Poetry Friday is hosted today by Tabatha Yeatts: The Opposite of Indifference.

Summer is beach time so here is "At the Sea Floor Cafe: odd ocean critter poems" written by Leslie Bulion and illustrated by Leslie Evans.

Bulion's poems celebrate some of the oceans more unusual creatures and sidebars provide scientific information about them as well.  A variety of poetic forms are explored as Bulion descends through the ocean depths in search of worthy subjects for her verse. 

Evans utilizes block prints to capture the beauty and diversity of sea life.  A glossary and additional reading conclude the book.
