In glittering hues, the cartoon characters illustrating the many verses in this volume provoke sidesplitting laughs. (Publishers Weekly)
Although numerous editions of Mother Goose have appeared over the years, James Marshall's will need no defense. In his inimitable style, he has filled the pages with a hilarious and memorable cast of characters. . . . The book is a subtle and funny treatment of traditional material in which the characters tell stories all their own. (The Horn Book)
A perfect introduction to the Grande Dame's repertoire for youngest listeners. Full of sunny, airy, and artfully simple pictures this volume contains some of Mother Goose's cheeriest and most lilting rhymes. (Harper's)
