Michael Foreman's Nursery Rhymes Synopsis

This volume contains over of the best-known and loved nursery rhymes. There are lullabies, action rhymes, nonsense verse, riddles and tongue-twisters. Each lavish double page has its own setting against which individual, thematically linked rhymes are illustrated. The artist has also introduced intriguing visual links from one scene to the next. Thus the Grand Old Duke of York goes up one side of a hill while, over the page, Jack and Jill tumble down the other side. This is a classic and hugely enjoyable nursery rhyme collection by one of the world's great picture book artists.
