Meet Pooch, the mongoose along with scorpions, crabs, centipedes and other insects and reptiles in the pages of this charming little book as they talk about their habits and eccentricities – in verse! Did you know that the cobra cannot hear, and ‘dances’ because it is following the movements of the snake charmer’s flute? That the hermit crab does not have a shell of its own and has to go about looking for one that fits? And what, exactly, does the cockroach feel when you flee screaming from it? Crackling with wit, and full of fun facts, these poems by the author of the widely acclaimed “Cobra in My Kitchen”, are a must read for poetry and nature lovers alike.
