KIRKUS REVIEW

 The charming country mouse who realized that he was a poet in I'll Meet You at the Cucumbers (1988), makes his third and last appearance with 30 gentle poems, half new and half from the earlier books. Whether ruminating about his woodland friends or ranging from garden to city, Adam's voice has a rare simplicity and grace (``The fog/comes down/from the hills//and there/are/no hills...The fog/wraps/the barn//and there is/no/barn.//We know/they are/there...Still/we peer/into the fog//just to be sure'') plus deft humor (``Skunk is/spunky/mild as well/and what a tale his/tail/could tell!''). (Poetry. 5-10)
