9780152558208: Michael Foreman's Mother Goose

This Mother Goose collection contains more than two hundred of the best-known and best-loved rhymes. Each double-page spread presents thematic groups of rhymes that have clever visual links to the ones that follow. “If a bookshelf has room for only one Mother Goose, this volume should be a top contender.”--Publishers Weekly

About the Author:

MICHAEL FOREMAN is one of the world's leading illustrators of children's books and the winner of several major awards, including the Kate Greenaway Medal. His work ranges from picture books to fairy tales and original children's fiction. He is the illustrator of many Harcourt books, including Michael Foreman's Mother Goose, Joan of Arc, and Arthur, High King of Britain. He divides his time between London and St. Ives, England, his childhood home.

From Kirkus Reviews:

From a talented illustrator, a lush but uneven collection with a wealth of verse (over 200 rhymes, many unfamiliar), a delightful introduction by Iona Opie, and notably creative matching of rhymes to create composite double spreads (e.g., the old woman under the hill and the grand old Duke of York). The toddler chasing a feather across the opening pages is entrancing; the concluding pages of sunset fading into deepening blue are lovely. But few of the renditions offer new insights or memorable humor--Humpty Dumpty is ordinary compared to Brooke's; a pallid ``Hey Diddle Diddle'' makes one yearn for Caldecott, etc. Still, comprehensive and often attractive. Index. (Folklore/Picture book. 2-8) -- Copyright ©1991, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
