Charming illustrations by Erik Blegvad, an illustrator I have a great fondness for, are throughout this collection of pleasant poetry for children. Some of the poems feel dated with references to overshoes and steamships and Mary, Queen of Scots, but there are a few gems (besides the lovely art)- to make this worth a look.My favorite entry being a limerick:
"There was a Young Lady named Rose
Who was constantly blowing her nose;
Because of this failing
They sent her off whaling
So the whalers could say: "Thar she blows!".
Fabulous, yes?
