About this title


This is a collection of 117 nonsense rhymes, each featuring an animal, sometimes real, sometimes imaginary, and all are illustrated by Emma Chichester Clark. There are rhymes about ducks, pigs, hens, rabbits, cats, rats, bats, dogs and horses; monkeys, elephants, bears and crocodiles; a carrion crow and a cormorant, an 'awk and an arymous; a frogbird, a quangle wangle and a wee bit moosikie. Amongst the limericks, ballads, nursery rhymes, epigrams and tongue-twisters, are works by Edward Lear, Lewis Carroll and Hilaire Belloc. Emma Chichester Clark won the Mother Goose Award in 1988 for "Listen To This", and has also illustrated "Cissy Lavender", "Ragged Robin" and "The Minstrel and the Dragon Pup".

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
