There are so many changes happening in Wordsworth’s life – his best friend Emily has moved away, a new girl from Japan named Akiko is sitting in Emily’s chair at school and, worst of all, a bulldozer has invaded Wordsworth’s special koa grove where he thinks up new poems. What should Wordsworth do?

“I would want someone to be nice to Emily,” thinks Wordsworth. So he and his friends, Eliot and Dylan, invite Akiko to teach them about Japanese poetry. And what a good thing, too, because it is Akiko who has a clever idea to save the neighborhood trees from being knocked down.

Wordsworth! Stop the Bulldozer! joins Wordsworth the Poet and Wordsworth Dances the Waltz in the award-winning series of book featuring the poetry-loving mouse.
