Nonsense rhymes, some of which are familiar and some we've never heard before (and are happy now to discover), amply fill the pages of this picture book. A sampling of first lines would include ""Eenie, meenie, minie, mo"", ""An owl and an in a frying pan"", ""How much wood would a woodchuck chuck"" and so forth. They are divided into categories such as counting-out rhymes, jump-rope rhymes and tongue-twisters. We notice some of the verses have been edited so as not to offend; ""nigger"" for instance has been changed to ""rabbit"" in ""Eenie, meenie, minie, mo"". Perhaps this is begging the issue a little, for in sum the richness remains.
