KIRKUS REVIEW

This Animal Garden of Verses, SOME GOOD (""They had all been together/Since the days of Genesis/All of them amicable/None of them menaces"") and SOME WORSES is by one of the oldest pros-odiers writing a little down for the youngest members of the family. This one's about an asthmatic family sure to sneeze or sniffle at any pet and the special, special seeds given them by venerable Abidan Allseed, which grow a garden of Willow-pussy and Dogwood and Larkspur and Skunk Spruce, etc. etc... A nice notion to cultivate -- and even if Nash and Hilary Knight are not at their very best, the combination is certainly a dual drawing card, particularly for parents.
