Animal Epitaphs (J Patrick Lewis)

A rather dark and hilarious book. Would be great during a poetry unit for just the right kids - especially boys. If you look carefully you will see animals in illustrations from previous pages in the story.

Irony and wit permeate this darkly humorous collection in which each poem is the epitaph of a different animal. The pieces are grouped by animal type, and range in length from one to eighteen lines.
