Ed Emberley's woodcuts are handsome beyond description and, to all the many verses of Yankee Doodle, he shows Washington's soldiers marching and riding with a stiffly stylized precision. The song is a juvenile favorite (the music is given on the last page) and the verses are clever, which should add to the unquestionable eye appeal of the ink prints overlaid with squares of primary colors. Purists may argue that our Revolutionary soldiers were not noted for the perfection of drill and dress that are displayed here, but that's carping and this is too good-looking for that sort of reception.
