Within this thin volume of poetry, one will find the everyday musings of New Mexico author John L. Thompson. Thompson has often been described as a fresh and upcoming voice in the fields of horror, sci-fi and crime noir fiction but he has a passion for the free-verse poetry styles that are prevalent in today's modern literature. Thompson explores the elements that surrounds him in everyday life from old lost friends to past employments and into current political themes. His passion for history and heritage is also evident in some of his poetry pieces. He has a strong connection with the New Mexico outdoors and often writes of some of the things he has found in the vast open lands in the Land of Enchantment.
At the conclusion of Keith Harvey's novel, Cave Gossip, the protagonist recites an aphorism: being in being is. Sea Snails on a Black Chow's Tongue explores the meaning of this aphorism. The poems in this collection, then, deal with man's basic aloneness in being; a castaway, if you will, in his own existence.
A series of simple questions directs young readers to determine the differences between seemingly similar objects, encouraging them to develop powers of observation, discrimination, and visual analysis. There's plenty of opportunity to practice counting, too (but that's just the beginning ). With eye-catching, bold illustrations by a two-time Caldecott Honor-Book recipient.
