This companion volume to In the Sea features an array of verses about birds alongside beautiful illustrations by Becca Stadtlander. Each poem is a short, thoughtful description of a different bird, from the cunning crow to the majestic bald eagle, and Elliott employs an array of poetic techniques and tones to capture the birds’ individual qualities.
