Age Range: 3 - 8

KIRKUS REVIEW

Fifteen traditional limericks and other nonsense rhymes, plus five in the same spirit by the late illustrator ("Antoinette Leach came in from the beach/with a lobster asleep in her curls..."), each visualized in fairly literal fashion, without many of the witty graphic embroideries at which Marshall was so adept. Still, the inimitable caricatures and masterful sense of design are all his; and it's good to have his takes on such perennial rib-ticklers as the gentleman waving the mouse he's just found in his stew, or the "old man of Blackheath" being bitten when he sits on his own false teeth. (Picture book. 3-8)
