A is for Ark, For the blue and green Ark adrift in the dark. For the dawn of a new millennium Brian Patten has written a poem to the planet Earth.
Taking each letter of the alphabet in turn, and with a wonderful fresh eye and delicate accuracy, Brian Patten evokes images of the many natural wonders about us, from the creatures who swim in the depths of the oceans, to the heavens above us and the galaxies beyond.
In exquisite detail Sian Bailey has illustrated each letter, while every verse is interpreted by ten of the most celebrated and best-loved illustrators of our time.
This book is a major work of art with an essential simplicity and breathtaking beauty that will appeal to young and old. It is a fitting tribute to our blue and green planet and its precious cargo of life at the passing of a thousand years.
