Synopsis

I Saw Esau by Iona Opie

This collection of verse offers 170 rhymes: rhymes of insult and retaliation; of teasing and repartee; rhymes for skipping and for counting out; riddles, tounge-twisters, narratives and nonsense - rhymes that have been chanted by children for generations.

Reviews

First published in 1947 with the subtitle 'Traditional Rhymes of Youth

's rumbustious illustrations. Here are counting rhymes, nonsense rhymes, insults ('Red, white and blue, I don't speak to you'), incantations, lullabies, rhymes of retaliation ('Sit on your thumb, Till more room do come'), and more. A marvellous book for dipping into, it will revive many an ancient playground chant, and provide a splendid reference source for more serious study. (6+ years) (Kirkus UK)'
