glimmer in the gloom . . .
A beautifully illustrated treasury of poems about the last wildernesses on Earth, from the crystal kingdom Arctic to the dusty savannah and the black-as-space deep sea.

Kirkus Reviews praised Wild World, saying, “McAllister’s lovely, lyrical works provide fascinating perspectives on the Earth’s varied—and fragile—natural habitats while inspiring mindfulness and a sense of stewardship. . . . Wild World is the perfect blend of poetry and environmentalism.”
