An illustrated collection of approximately sixty nursery rhymes, including a mixture of popular and lesser known rhymes.

PreSchool-Grade 2 Some 60 nursery rhymes selected from this pair's Cakes and Custard (Morrow, 1975) are included in this companion volume to Helen Oxenbury's Nursery Story Book (Knopf, 1986) by Oxenbury. While almost all of the illustrations appeared in the earlier collection, a few are redrawn. The present volume's slightly larger size allows for bigger pictures, the framed watercolor and colored pencil drawings seem brighter, and the resultant look is sunny and spacious. Traditional and well-known Mother Goose rhymes keep company with less familiar ones, and while there are many illustrations and rhymes with childhood at the center, some selections will appeal to older readers as well. A little beggar girl looks poignantly out a window; a lascivious dish runs after an annoyed spoon; Elsie Marley is a floozy doing her nails in bed; and a drunken grenadier leans woozily on the barman's counter. For libraries that missed Cakes and Custard the first time around or whose patrons wish for a little less than the overwhelmingly complete and recent Mother Goose collections selected and illustrated by Arnold Lobel (Random, 1986) or by Tomie dePaola (Putnam, 1985), this makes a welcome addition.
