Sail off in a wooden shoe, pick fruit from a sugarplum tree, wish the sunshine a good morning, and sing a sea song from the shore! In this magical world; filled with sun dappled river banks and snow covered forests, bright yellow daffodils and bloom laden cherry trees; you ll share adventures with cheerful crocodiles, tiny fairies, friendly cows, and dancing children. Visit this enchanting place in two hundred beloved poems, from the voyage of The Owl and the Pussycat to the serenity of Night Blessing, the fun of Counting Out Rhymes to the adventures of The Kayak. Gyo Fujikawa s beautiful colour and black and white illustrations captivate young and old alike, and will add to the fun of reading these timeless poems. You ll want to romp and play, and explore and travel, along with her fanciful creatures, adorable animals and charming children.
