KIRKUS REVIEW

Eleven droll verses Mother Goose would be glad to take under her wing. Or Joseph Jacobs: ""On a small enchanted mountain/ Lives a small enchanted gnome/ With his small enchanted wife/ In their small enchanted home.// He wears small enchanted clothing/ Sewn of small enchanted thread/And a small enchanted stocking/On his small enchanted head."" In a more raffish vein: ""See the stork so trim and neat/ Scarlet stockings on his feet/ He has worn them since last week/Just to match his long red beak.
