Sprinkled throughout one might find a limerick or jingle - and always the element of surprise. This is a book the entire family can enjoy. The bottom edges are very lightly worn. The first one or two end papers are missing in front. Very light ex-lib marks. The jacket is in a library cover, and has a few chips on the bottom front.
