After reading so many books written in choppy rhyme, this book was a delight to read out loud. The rhyming schemes do not match from number to number, but within each "verse" the rhyming scheme and meter work beautifully. It was reminiscent of reading nursery rhymes.
Garth Williams illustrated this book. Garth Williams. the illustrator of Little House on the Prairie book and of Charlotte's Web, illustrated this book. Yeah, that Garth Williams.
