9780679987369: The Arnold Lobel Book of Mother Goose: A Treasury of More Than 300 Classic Nursery Rhymes

Knopf is proud to reissue the complete and unabridged Arnold Lobel-illustrated treasury of Mother Goose rhymes, originally published in 1986 as The Random House Book of Mother Goose and unavailable for several years. Reviewers were unanimous in their acclaim of a collection "brimming over with energy...distinguished by abundant humor and a rich variety of moods and styles" (School Library Journal, starred review). The beloved creator of the Frog and Toad books included 306 nursery rhymes--several hundred more than any other quality edition of Mother Goose--and "all are illustrated in a cornucopia of drawings which demonstrates the range of [his] technique and imagination" (Kirkus Reviews).  The New York Times Book Review called it "brilliant," while The Washington Post Book World praised it as "surely one of the most satisfying nursery-rhyme books ever made."

From the Back Cover:

“Mother Goose glows with renewed youth, thanks to the genius of Arnold Lobel. His illustrations are so abundant, and so full of color, fun, and imagination, that the book is not to be missed.”–The New Yorker
From the Hardcover edition.
