One of my pet peeves in life is with modern literature formats and the cheesy, or worse, illustrations presented to children as art. This book actually had quite acceptable, pleasing line drawings placed sparingly at the head of each long chapter - I found myself smiling at this art. The poems speak for themselves, and should be in every home.
