In the Woods

By David Elliott
Illustrated by Rob Dunlavey

A New York Times best-selling author shares his love for woodland animals in a revealing, beautifully illustrated collection of verse for poetry lovers and budding naturalists.

The animals in the dark woods are secretive, their inner lives a mystery. The stealthy bobcat, the inquisitive raccoon, and the dignified bear waking up from his winter nap are just a few of the glorious animals featured in this clever collection of poems and woodland scenes. This companion to In the Sea, In the Wild, and On the Farm is the first collaboration between David Elliott and Rob Dunlavey, whose colorful, expressive art pairs with the author’s charming poems to create a love letter to the animals of the forest.

  • This collection of poems will give young readers a fresh look at the fascinating variety of life found in America’s forests
  • Succinct witty poems combine with evocative illustrations of shy creatures in the forest
  • The continuation of the extremely successful series by New Englander David Elliott, with New England illustrator Rob Dunlavey
