Discover the hidden world of the meadow in this unique
combination of poetry riddles and science wisdom.
Beginning with the rising sun and ending with twilight,
this book takes us on a tour through the fields,
encouraging us to watch for a nest of rabbits,
a foamy spittlebug, a leaping grasshopper,
bright milkweed, a quick fox, and a cruising hawk.

From Kirkus Reviews, Starred
"Combining striking illustrations, evocative poems
that do double duty as riddles and lucid prose commentary, this venture into the natural world stands out for both its beauty and its unusual approach."
