All Creatures Great and Small

Sarah Seidelmann’s book is all things bright and beautiful about all creatures, or beasties, great and small. I loved that hymn when I was little because it was about animals (to my mind) and it is that same happiness that bubbles up when I read her book: What the Walrus Knows. The book makes me smile, it changes the way I am in the world and it absolutely brings all sorts of wonderful beasts out to play with me. Its the kind of book that inspires sparkling conversation about the orca whale in your dreams, the mouse on the train platform, and the urban fox at your window every evening. In short, it is a liberal splash of joy and passion from a brave and creative soul who wants us to experience the wisdom that all the life around us has to offer.
