Have you ever peeked under a rock? This book shows a whole community of creatures that live there!
A child turns over a rock and discovers a whole community of amazing creatures from eight-eyed spiders to "a sole millipede with a sensitive feel/Who slips through the dirt in search of a meal." Borrowing the poetic form of the nursery rhyme, "The House that Jack Built," the text gives a defining characteristic of each of eight creatures and tells how it relates to the next. Vivid, close-up illustrations add considerable charm.
