It is poetry all along. Even the introduction is in verse! We have here a restoration and celebration of the felicity of beloved rhyme, rapidly sinking into oblivion in obedience to the fragmented nature of the modern condition. The pattern builds up naturally and the poem winds up effortlessly. This is a poetic romance of a lively kind.
The ease and facility with a wide range of apt vocabulary items that faithfully serve to express the myriad moods and responses to multiple stimuli are a delight to follow. And, there are the beautiful illustrations that accompany the poems and appeal to the eyes as the words speak to the mind. The themes are as varied as they are compelling.
