PoetryBook - 1991
Lola Sneyd's empathy for children is reflected in her poems. She writes of nature: plants, animals, bugs, the weather; of the environment in the city, farms, cottage country; of people and their foibles.
In this fourth collection, poet Lola Sneyd and illustrator Doug Sneyd observe those enchanting and complicated creatures we love, cats ! Here are cats as fierce as tigers - smiling - sliding into the food dish - purring innocently - independent - patting the water-drops - interrupting our work and scratching the chairs. Sound like a cat you know?
Lola Sneyd and Doug Sneyd have collaborated on three previous books for Simon & Pierre: The Asphalt Octopus , The Concrete Giraffe and Nature's Big Top .
