Review quote

"This fine anthology will appeal to a young audience. James Reeves, Eleanor Farjeon, Lilian Moore, and Walter De La Mare are among the dozens of well-known and less-familiar ... poets included.... Illustrations by eight artists ... decorate each double-page spread.... Should find a wide audience."--School Library Journalshow more
