Description: Oxford University Press, London, 1957, first edition.. 277 pp, large 8vo (9 1/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. B&w illustrations throughout. "Eleanor Farjeon's poetry needs no introduction. She is one of the few real poets for children. The springtime world of her verse, the entrancing jingles and gay humour, the flights of fancy, capture at once the heart and the imagination. Here are verses of places and people, of saints and heroes, play songs and songs for all seasons of the year. The dancing rhythms and rhymes, the charm and music of t he words, provide an immediate entry into the world of truth and beauty." Tiny tear and wrinkling at top of spine, small areas of paper offset from dust jacket on edges of boards. Dust jacket is price clipped, has light to moderate edge wear, light rubbing to rear panel, several tiny to small tears - two taped on inside, one very small chip. VG-/G.
