This is like Alice. You take it when you are very young and love it. Then you go through a period of feeling above it ""that's kid stuff"". And then you grow up to it again, and find new meanings. Here is an omnibus volume containing Cautionary Tales, A Fad Child's Book of Feasts and all the others, seven volumes in all. Moral tales, and nonsense verse, with sly wit and wisdom, with the original illustrations by B. T. M. and Nicholas Bentley.
