KIRKUS REVIEW

A cheerful, approachable collection of 45 poems, most of them already widely anthologized: from brief (""Fuzzy Wuzzy"") to lengthy (""The Tale of Custard the Dragon""); several from Mother Goose; such familiar voices as de la Mare, Frost, Cummings, Milne, Lear, Stevenson; funny, meditative, dramatic--a miscellany concluding with several poems about evening and bed. A nice introduction to familiar poetry, with generous white space and attractive realistic illustrations in soft-colored pencils on every page.
