Hundreds of animal species provide the cast of characters for these newly composed bio-limericks, arranged into 17 chapters by taxonomic group (such as Birds, Fishes, Insects) or biological subject (such as Ecology, Genetics, and Anthropology). Sometimes multiple verses on one organism or topic provide an extended story-line across successive poems. In addition, several stylistic vignettes recur throughout the book, such as: (a) “On the Farm”, which ranges from barnyards to fish farms to oyster farms; and (b) “Let’s Play Jeopardy”, where the reader guesses an animal from poetic clues the author provides.
