KIRKUS REVIEW

Children who have not been exposed to the poetry of Robert Graves are in for a delightful and provocative experience in this new book of selected poems for and about children. There are poems for fun -- "How and Why", poems for dreaming, "The Bedpost", poems of strange adventure, "The Alice Jean". Twenty three in all, they recapture a time and place long forgotten through old fashioned charm and whimsy. Edward Ardizzone's gentle pictures will help translate the imagery for all.
