A lyrical leap from one animal to the next!
"A flea asleep / in the deep green moss / nettled by midges / wakes up cross, / starts to fidget / and turn and toss." And then he LEAPS into the path of a grasshopper. Who, in turn, LEAPS onto a bunny. And so it goes, dog, fish, bullfrog, horse and dog again, each leaping and upsetting the next. Until, at last, the dog arrives in that same deep green moss. The flea leaps onto the dog. And they both fall asleep! A romp of a satisfying, circular story poem—like a game of tag, it's pure delight!
