Adder, Bluebell, Lobster

You might notice something about the titles in this book. Yes, they're all natural words but they've got something else in common: they've all been removed from of the Oxford Junior Dictionary.

"If you add an adder to an adder
they are prone to have a dance,
they writhe around each other
till the strongest gets a chance
to PUSH the other down."


The 40 poems in this book are inspired by over 100 natural worlds that author Chrissie Gittins is saving from extinction.


To celebrate 30 Days Wild, we've got one copy of this brilliant book up for grabs. We want you to write your own poem about your favourite thing about nature. It might be your favourite wild animal, your favourite flower, or your favourite 30 Days Wild adventure!
