KIRKUS REVIEW

 Never have young children had a better introduction to Mother Goose than this profusely illustrated collection of 21 rhymes, at last available again--see comments above. They are in a new order, but they're all here, and there's now an index. A few plates (perhaps those for which the original art has been lost) seem fuzzy, but most reveal Brooke's marvelous draftsmanship and the subtleties of his painting with new clarity--though some of the colors here revealed will startle his old friends. A book that should be in every child's own library. British critic Neil Philip contributes the same ``Afterword'' to both books. (Folklore/Picture book. 1-8)
