Mudimals

poem by Claire Saxby , illustrated by David Legge

Look in the puddle,

what do you see?

I see a crocodile looking at me.

Her tail curves long,

her teeth are pointy.

 

Look in the puddle,

what do you see?

I see a hippo looking at me.

His belly is round,

his mouth is wide.

 

Look in the puddle,

what do you see?

I see a lion looking at me.

His mane is thick,

his claws are sharp.

 

Look at the puddle,

what do you see?

I see a giant, looking at me.

Her boots are set

to stomp and splash.
