KIRKUS REVIEW

Through a thousand and one delightful rhymes about anything and everything, the irrepressible Alexander Soames converts his doubtful mother and proves that rhyming is a gift, not a malady. Alexander you see, can speak only in verse. Mother requests that he versify on many subjects -- dancing, beetles, bugs, rules, porcupines and poetry itself. In each case Alexander comes up with rhymes that call out to be learned by readers and listeners.
