Oh WHY must you bark at the postman?
Why must you batter my ears?
I know it seems rum
But the postman has come
Every morning for TWENTY-FIVE YEARS.
Bringing to life the charming characters and voices of all creatures great and small through her poetry for decades, this is the definitive collection of Pam Ayres' poetry dedicated to her love of animals, with brand new introductions, poems and illustrations. From delightful tales of our British wildlife in 'I'm a Starling Me Darling' and the difficulties of keeping farm animals in 'Fleeced', to her hilarious observations of our pets in 'Ode to a Jack Russell' and poignant reflections on the end of their lives in 'Tippy Tappy Feet', Ayres on Animals is a celebration of animals everywhere.
