This fantastic book has it all! poems about goblins, seasons, Halloween, kittens, owls, even lobsters! This amazing collection was compiled by Marjorie Barrows and the book is dated 1938 Whitman Publishing Company. The book edge is reinforced with tape but the book has never been read and the binding glue is still intact (no pages are missing!). The first page has a child's name scribbled onto it, but no other writing is in the book. Edges on outside of pages have some discoloration but the inside is mint. Features some wonderful illustrations to go with every poem. Book measures 5 1\/2 X 7 1\/2 inches and is 5\/8 of an inch thick. Silhouettes are by Janet Laura Scott and Paula Rees Good. A great find to add to any children's book collection.
