Twosomes: Love Poems from the Animal Kingdom

Marilyn Singer, illus. by Lee Wildish, Knopf, $7.99 (24p) ISBN 978-0-375-86710-1
In this greeting card–sized book, animals express their fondness for one another in rhyming couplets. Two bucktoothed horses exchange gazes in side-by-side stables: "Nose to nose, hip to hip,/ ours is a stable relationship." In another, chameleons peer fondly from respective branches ("You and I could be a team,/ if we agree on color scheme"), and a dolphin gushes, "Come leap with me and be my wife./ You're the porpoise of my life." Singer's endearing puns and Wildish's expressively love-struck cartoon animals should tickle young and old valentines alike. Ages 8–12. (Jan.)
