This book is a wonderful collection of nursery rhymes, fairy and folk tales from Groningen, Drente, Overyssel, Gelderland, Friesland, Utrecht, North Holland South Holland, Zeeland, North Brabant and Limburg. The stories are filled with magic, adventure, wit and plain old good humor. Laugh with Tyl Ulenspiegel the clown, puppets Jan Klaasen and his wife Katryn, the German Hannekemaiers and the wise men of Kampen. Travel back in time to great points in Dutch history, and have fun saying the catchy rhymes sprinkled throughout the book.
Illustrators Maud and Miska Petersham travelled throughout the Netherlands in preparation for their work. Each poem or story is accurately illustrated withthe correct costume and architecture as a result of their efforts. The end result is a fabulous collection of stories brilliantly illustrated.

This copy is a 192 page hardcover in very nice vintage condition. The pages are clean and tightly bound with minimal age tanning and wear. The front flyleaf and one page of text has crayon markings. The title page has a small tear mended with tape and some creasing. The spine is strong and pages are tightly bound.
