A Treasury of Poems for Children
Set sail with "Wynken, Blynken, and Nod" and "The Owl and the Pussy-Cat," and gaze in wonder at the night sky with "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star." Stroll the beach with "The Walrus and the Carpenter," and experience the magic of Christmas with "A Visit from St. Nicholas." This enchanting collection of childhood verse features these and nearly 100 other classic poems, illustrated by a master of the Art Nouveau style.
With his fine eye for intricate detail and boundless enthusiasm for the fantastic, Willy Pogány perfectly captures the charm of these beloved verses in color and black-and-white images. Favorite poems include the works of William Blake, Robert Louis Stevenson, Lewis Carroll, George MacDonald, and other great poets. Includes a selection from the Common Core State Standards Initiative: "The Owl and the Pussycat."
