Twosomes: Love Poems From the Animal Kingdom

Twosomes: Love Poems From the Animal Kingdom. Marilyn Singer. Illustrated by Lee Wildish. 2011. Random House. 24 pages.

Bats
Good morning! How the nighttime flew!
Now, may I hang around with you?

Dogs
Nice to meetcha! You smell delish!
Wanna share my water dish?

I enjoyed this small poetry book very much. The poems are very short--just two lines apiece. But some of them work very well; some are quite clever! My favorite would probably be the ones featuring porcupines and geese.
