I would happily hang any page from this book on my wall. It’s not just the illustrations I love, the words and ideas are magnificent as well.
“I wish I had the night-black coat of a panther as it slips through the darkness… and the far-reaching gaze of an owl, light as a ghost.”
There is so much scope for using this book with a class exploring poetry, I have a whole lot of love for this one.
Check out I wish I had… at Auckland Libraries.
Or buy I wish I had… from Fishpond.
