KIRKUS REVIEW

What a genius! What grand illustrations for over one hundred of our old favorites!...This edition is bound to attract a vast amount of attention because of its odd size, very tall and narrow; also the publishers are behind it to the extent of printing a first edition of 40,000 copies which are almost gone already. There is only one poem and picture to a page and most are particularly well adapted to the intriguing format. Evidently the illustrator had never before heard our nursery rhymes, so the approach is fresh and most satisfactory. We hope that some of the pictures will be available for framing, they would be perfect for nursery walls. This will be difficult to place on your shelves but it will be so sought for that you should always have it available in shop or library, out on display.
