Synopsis

A Strange Place to Call Home by Marilyn Singer

Of all the miracles of life, it is life's persistence that astounds the most. In the endless black of the deepest caves, blind fish find their way. In a frozen forest, snow monkeys find cozy hot springs to keep warm. Even in the salt desert's barren cold, flamingoes bloom like vivid flowers. The fourteen animals in this book defy the odds and make their homes under the weight of seas, in the belly of tar pits, in the sandstorm's mouth. Renowned poet Marilyn Singer and celebrated artist Ed Young offer a fascinating look at the creatures that call the strangest places home.
