KIRKUS REVIEW

 The illustrator of the Angelina Ballerina series brings her whimsical, charmingly detailed style to 54 favorite nursery rhymes, interpreting some with frames combined into decorative, rhythmic pages and creatively varying her designs with full spreads that illustrate more than one rhyme, insets, cutaways, and more. Though always lively, a few haven't much new to say (e.g., a traditional cow jumping over the moon); most, however, incorporate Craig's pleasingly diminutive figures (of which there must be hundreds in the carefully multicultural representation here) in amusing visualizations and extensions of the verse. A fine choice for home or library. Alphabetized ``Contents.'' (Folklore/Picture book. 2-7)
