Children’s Poet Laureate J. Patrick Lewis and the inimitable Jane Yolen team up in this ironic and witty take on the last moments in the lives of a variety of animals. Each poem in this darkly humorous collection is an epitaph of a different animal. Grouped by animal type, these posthumous poems are full of clever wordplay and macabre humor that will appeal to kids (and adults) of all ages.

"Gallows humor at its finest." --Booklist
"...original and inventive..." --School Library Journal
"...excellent bait for the poetry-reluctant." --The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
