The Poet of Piney Woods (Hardcover)
A misunderstood wolf writes poems about his forest home and friends in this breathtaking picture book
The Poet Wolf loves to write pithy verse in the pine forest, but his forest friends see not a poet, but a hungry wolf. That is, until they listen to his lovely poems about life in the woods and discover that behind this apex predator is a sensitive soul who prefers to eat not his furry fellow creatures, but crisp pears.
