Enough curiosities here to tantalise even the most hardened gongoozler. (London Review of Books)
This mad exporation of words is weirdly addictive and Ben Shahn's etchings make it even more appealing. (Junior)

Now that I have a little grandson, I jumped at the chance to secure a copy of this classic for him when he is old enough to enjoy it. So glad I was reminded of the existence of this book, lo these many years later!
By the way, I think the talented artist/illustrator of this book, Ben Shahn, created a whimsical painting of my favorite composer, Johann Sebastian Bach. I believe it was featured as a cover on Time magazine. I loved that illustration and saved it for many years but have since lost track of it. I wish I could see that painting again. :)
