KIRKUS REVIEW

. . . We may see how all things are . . . Seas and cities near and far. . . And the flying fairies' looks, . . . In the picture storybooks."" R.L.S.'s beloved silver rhymes are illustrated with many full color spreads as well as individual black and whites. In Gyo Fujikawa's work, one glimpses occasionally her heritage from Japan. Now and again her renderings of snowfall, or mist obscuring a hillside, of starry blossoms -- recall that ""floating world"", Yuk of the Japanese block print. The romping children pictured are sometimes contemporary, sometimes quaint little Victorians.
