KIRKUS REVIEW

Self-described as an ""orderly hodgepodge,"" this is close kin to The Nonsense Book (1970), but the rhymes, riddles and songs served up here are by no means leftovers. Children will love the sheer profusion of the familiar and not-so-familiar, sparked by lb Ohlsson's sassy cartoons, and adults will be drawn to the more than 60 pages of source notes and bibliography.
