Creep, leap, and crunch through a day in the forest, tracking the sun’s movements and the movements of the creatures below via a rhyming, cumulative narrative. The second half of Shaffer’s tale is essential, imagining the cricket, deer mouse, milk snake, hawk, and fox escaping their would-be consumers.
