A whole new world right before our eyes. Look closely at the world around you, and you may see another world a world where butterflies are the ghosts of pumpkins and an oak tree turns into a timber chimney; where raccoons are party animals, sunflowers blow jazz, and an ordinary egg is a source of wonder. In twenty-three thought-provoking and playful poems, elegantly illustrated by Jenny Reynish, Heidi Mordhorst invites us to look beyond, to see the other side of nature. Surprises await if only we open our mind's eye.

Review quote

"Far from any solemn reverential view of nature, the poems are filled with fun action that is always rooted in physicality, whether it is shooting a cherry pit missile out of the park ('spitwhistle summerfun home run') or making frozen angels in the snow." --"Booklist"
