KIRKUS REVIEW

If you think that 17 rhymes about love and related pursuits must be all sweet tenderness you don't remember your Mother Goose, who finds more poetry in the chase and the cheating than the happily-ever-after. Nonny Hogrogian's selection and arrangement slyly demonstrate the old bird's wisdom while her bashful milkmaids and farm boys, framed in spring-colored country scenes, give even the needles and pins (of ""when a man marries his trouble begins"") a compensating loveliness.
