This narrative poem, Gene Kemp's first, is told in 17 sections of varying lengths illustrated by Andrew Davidson's lively woodcuts, full of their own surprises if studied hard enough. The story of released mink seeking to take over Wistman's Wood by violence is told in poetry that combines vivid word pictures with evocative, resonant language and creates tiny, memorable cameo characters. With a right-minded group it would make a book well worth class-sharing.
