KIRKUS REVIEW

Like the Larrick book (1965, p. 316-J-108) this comes fairly well pre-tested by the ultimate readers themselves. According to the information supplied by the publishers, a number of the selections were included on the recommendation of librarians of the Free Library of Philadelphia. The poems all share an important aspect, especially within the bounds set by the title; they are easy to read aloud with emphasis on the dramatic narrative poetry forms and the worlds of the poems are, for the most part, in current use. The editor supplies a foreword aimed at the juvenile reader defining the technical differences between various verse and rhyme schemes.
