Water Pennies and Other Poems

by N. M. Bodecker, Erik Blegvad

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 1-5-- A collection of 32 small poems about small things found in, on, and around a pond--Daddy Longlegs, ladybirds, slugs, gnats, and such. Published posthumously, these light verses by the Danish-American poet are illustrated with lively black pen-and-ink drawings. Bodecker has a finely tuned feeling for form, and his whimsical reinvention of the tiny creatures he observes is sometimes charming, but his clever word play--such a vital part of the appeal of Let's Marry, Said the Cherry (Atheneum, 1974; o.p.) and A Person from Britain & Other Limericks (McElderry, 1980; o.p.) -- only occasionally brightens these selections. --Ann Stell, The Smithtown Library, NY
