New Title


1) Irving, Kirsten and Jon Stone (editors). Birdbook: Freshwater Habitats. 2012. Sidekick Books. Paperback: 152 pages. Price: £10.00 (about $15.76 U.S.).

SUMMARY: The second volume of Sidekick Books’ sure-footed, full-feathered tour of our native (British) avian population takes us to lakes, marshes and rivers, where surely enough, a sumptuous conglomeration of birds cavort, sidle, gaggle, squabble and goggle. Expanding on the richness and variety of the first book, this collection draws together the work of a further array of poets and illustrators, each active in their own field. It makes for a festival of styles almost as multifarious as the subjects themselves, and just as certain to evoke fascination and breathy delight!
RECOMMENDATION: For those with an interest in bird related poetry.
