Originally a nursery rhyme, the poem "Johnny Crow's Garden" has sort of fallen out of favor. The only way a person may remember it is as in Brooke's charming book. In it, each animal that comes to Johnny Crow's garden has a distinct problem, situation, or preference. By "garden" we're basically talking about Johnny Crow's estate. Most of the action takes place on his grounds. He is depicted here as a very realistic looking bird, as are all the animals that visit with him. Brooke fills his illustrations with tiny in-jokes and running gags. A pair of penguins never are directly mentioned in the text itself but are so delightful to watch that it makes perfect sense that they'd be the last guests to leave at the end of the book. There's a view of a whale boring fellow animals with an enormously long tale.Read more ›
All kinds of animals live in Johnny Crow's garden. The lion wears a green and yellow tie. When the bear has no coat, the ape measures and makes one for him. When the crane is caught in the rain, the crow brings him an umbrella and so the story goes on until the fox puts all the animals in stocks? Who will let them out?
A great classic :)
