Eels in high heels! Buttery manatees! A squid who's a jerk! Hip bats! Flatulent dragons! Wombless wombats! A lucky moonlit possum! A slow sex-starved he sloth! Tricky ticks! Spiders with bad-girl allure and hourglass waists! A jazzy goose! The snuffling snowbeast! And that's not all-Frustrated roosters, gizzard nibbling lizards, and sentimentowl owls! These and many other curious creatures populate the perfectly peculiar poetic menagerie of A. Tad Strange. In the great tradition of poets like Ogden Nash, Marianne Moore, and Edward Gorey, Strange's strange 21st-century bestiary offers a roaring good time, horselaughs aplenty, and the inevitable purrs of cuddlesome readerly contentment. With slitheringly seductive wordplay, strange molts words into new meanings. He hatches high-soaringly delightful lines and swallows common-sense headfirst until only a smile remains and the piggy toes of reality are left wriggling. Beastly Bestiary-A tender treat of soft chewy poems guaranteed not to create intellectual indigestion or starve one's funny bone.
