LoveReading View on The Cat and the Fiddle A Treasury of Nursery Rhymes

With over forty traditional nursery rhymes, personally chosen by the illustrator and laid out in colour-drenched double spreads, this is a beautiful collection of rhymes that has the makings of a classic. The pictures contain lots of detail to pore over, with strong decorative elements and a fine sense of colour and design. The perfect book to share, not only with a baby, but with the whole family.
