Praise For The Cat and the Fiddle: A Treasury of Nursery Rhymes

'So beautiful that it seems impossible paper and card could contain so much magic.'



Far more than just another nursery rhyme book, this sumptuous volume is one to pore over, cherish, and return to again and again. There is much to discover in the arresting pictures, and I anticipate this lovely book will become a classroom essential.
