Absolutely Wild by Dennis Webster

Tricia Stohr-Hunt, blogger at The Miss Rumphius Effect, is well-known around the Cybils–she's been a Round I panelist for Non-Fiction Picture Books, and this year she's a Round I panelist for the Poetry category. Since she's a teacher herself (of Education!), she frequently blogs about topics of interest to teachers such as thematic booklists, but besides that, she's a true poetry enthusiast.

This is a book that readers young and old will enjoy. It's fun, joyful and energetic in both word and illustration.
