From School Library Journal:

PreS Up-- Clark has illustrated 117 British limericks, song lyrics, and jump-rope rhymes that range from short, anonymously written bits of pure silliness with no apparent rhyme or reason to such well-known poems as Edward Lear's "The Owl and the Pussycat" and some of Lewis Carroll's familiar verse. Most are attractively placed on profusely illustrated pages, some highlighted by double-page spreads, many featuring animals. Regrettably, much of the collection is an assortment of odd verses that will not appeal to most American children. The better-known rhymes in this attractive volume are in many other collections; the others are unnecessary additions. --Susan Scheps, Shaker Heights Public Library, OH

From Kirkus Reviews:

In generous, Mother-Goose-style format, more than 100 verses, mostly traditional but including a few by the likes of Lear and Belloc. Animals are featured here, creatively grouped by species or bizarre behavior. Clark's witty illustrations are just right--her round-eyed characters are amazed observers of their own antics, the serene watercolor backgrounds make an ironic contrast to the lively action. A delightful compilation, handsomely presented. Index. (Poetry/Picture book. 3-8) -- Copyright ©1991, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
