Ice! Poems about Polar Life
Douglas Florian an award-winning poet and fine artist who has had much success with poetry collections that he has both written and illustrated. Frequently using wordplay, rhythm, and rhyme in his poetry and crayons and paper bags in his illustrations, he consistently uses humor to engage his young audience. He has written and illustrated two I Like to Read(R) books for Holiday House, Pig Is Big on Books and Pig and Cat Are Pals. He has read his poetry at Carnegie Hall, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, Poets House, and The White House, and his abstract paintings have been exhibited in numerous solo and group shows. He lives and works in New York City.
★ “There are lots of surprises in the inventive wordplay along with twisted syntax that gets the point across while invoking giggles from young readers. . . . Florian is a master of light verse with a purpose, and he matches it with art that charms. Thoughtful, fun, and delightful.”—Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review
“The delightful illustrations are a highlight. . . . . a terrific example of poetry and the wonder of the natural world.”—School Library Journal
“Informative facts about the regions and animals appear as mini notes below each poem . . . Florian’s signature impressionistic illustrations in colored pencils and oil pastels add verve.” —The Horn Book
