Poetry. Young Adult. Illustrated by Liz Laribee. The poems and illustrations in OCCASIONALLY ACCURATE SCIENCE investigate, play with, and push the envelope of collective nouns in fantastical and ordinary ways. With off-the-wall forms and the occasional scientific accuracy, OCCASIONALLY ACCURATE SCIENCE seeks to help children (and quirky adults!) explore the blurry lines between fact and fiction, poetry and taxonomy. OCCASIONALLY ACCURATE SCIENCE allows readers to explore the fantastical world of groupings of animals with one eye turned toward the truth. It is a delightful book that can be used for fancy and education in equal measure.
