Sorry, this item has sold.

This is a like new inside hardcover with very good dust jacket. 1992 Candlewick Press. This copy is crisp and clean inside. Pages are crisp, clean and free of markings. Binding tight and straight. 8vo quarto. Blue hardcover boards under jacket are like new. The dust jacket is very good but does have very light shelf wear too edges and corners.

Collected in this book are the wit and wisdom of generations of schoolchildren - more than 170 rhymes ranging from riddles to tongue twisters and jump-rope rhymes. With Iona Opie's intro and detailed notes along with Maurice Sendak's remarkable pictures - vignettes, sequences, and full page paintings both wickedly funny and comically sad - this book offers knowledge and entertainment to all who open it. Classic childhood text.

Thank you for visiting Bobbis Bookstore !!

This book is in very good condition, as promised by the shop. It’s in better shape than books I’ve brought home from big-box bookstores, in fact.
