A revised edition of the classic Mother Goose Treasury. All the well-known rhymes are here as well as some less often recited. Raymond Briggs has described nursery rhymes as ‘rough, tough and earthy’ and his illustrations reflect their origins in the lives of ordinary working people. An important early introduction to poetry.
