In this collection of poems, noted children's poet Jane Yolen takes readers on an expedition underground, exploring everything from animal burrows and human creations, like subways, near the surface--to ancient cities and fossils, lower down--to caves, magma, and Earth's tectonic plates, deeper still below our feet. At the same time, in Josée Masse's rich art, a girl and boy, accompanied by several animals, go on a fantastic underground journey. This book contains science, poetry, and an adventure story all rolled into one. But it's also more than that: In these poems we see that beneath us are the past, present, future--history, truth, and story. This thought-provoking collection will evoke a sense of wonder and awe in readers, as they discover the mysterious world underneath us.

Another beautiful Jane Yolen book this time about all the things that can be found beneath our feet. Everything from basements to earthworms to subways to tectonic plates. With poetry and wonderful illustrations included this book is a great read to contemplate the world beneath us.
