KIRKUS REVIEW

One glimpse of the merry Wells (The Language of Doves, p. 1159, etc.) characters that caper through these pages--a cast of hundreds--one flip through the pages where Opie (I Saw Esau, 1992, etc.) has arranged almost 70 familiar and not-so-familiar rhymes to an effect of unabashed glee, and readers will be in love again with the original Mother Goose. There's little point in pretending that even prodigious collections of nursery rhymes can do without this one--it's a must. (index) (Poetry. 2-8)
