Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This expanded reissue...containing one third new material, is sure to tickle the funnybones of a new generation." —Kirkus Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3-6-- Poems about animals and birds (both familiar and unfamiliar), everyday objects, limericks, and a nonsense ABC are accompanied by whimsical pen-and-ink drawings. This revised and enlarged edition includes a substantial number of new poems as well as many that have appeared in Smith's other collections, such as Boy Blue's Book of Beasts (Little, 1957) and Mr. Smith and Other Nonsense (Dell, 1968; both o.p.). Five new sections have been added, and the print is smaller, making the book more appealing to the upper age range although still accessible to younger children as well. --Sally R. Dow, Ossining Public Library, NY
