MOTHER GOOSE by Tasha Tudor Kirkus Star

Pub Date: Oct. 19th, 1944

Publisher: Oxford

This is a lovely little Mother Goose, quite off the beaten track, not only in its selection but in its small format, scarcely larger than a squarish stocking book. The illustrations by Tasha Tudor have a Kate Groonaway quality, and the reproductions are excellent, giving a fool of original pastels and wash drawings. There are 77 rhymes in the collection, -- more than half of them are the indispensables; the balance includes some that we think of as counting rhymes, rounds, familiar sayings and some that are rarely soon except in complete editions.
