A Book of Animal Verse
Chosen by E. C. R. Hadfield
Illustrated by Erna Pinner.
Oxford University Press, 1943
Yellow pictorial dust jacket with matching boards.
Full of delightful classics and unexpected treats.
This Anthology of Animal Verse includes poems that will please all members of the family, from the very youngest who will enjoy Three Blind Mice and Walter de la Mare's Bah! to the older readers who will read with interest and enjoyment such poems as The Viper by Ruth Potter and The Donkey by G. K. Chesterton.
From the blurb:
'Humorous ballads, descriptive poems and short lyrics by poets of the present and past are included in this collection, and the compiler hopes that poems to suit all tastes will be found herein, and that the volume will give pleasure to many animal lovers.'
