Wonderfully illustrated in a myriad of styles—from classic ink and watercolor drawings to painted cartoons, impressionistic images, digital art, and cut and torn paper—this treasury collects nursery rhymes and children's songs from all over the world, with settings by by more than 70 artists. Jon Klassen hilariously imagines Little Jack Horner, several fat Christmas geese, and the old man with a hat sharing a tumbledown shack in the snow, while Jerry Pinkney pictures Noah swinging a heavy hammer as he builds his ark. Dishes and cups come to life in Mini Grey's kitchen rhymes, and Eric Carle illuminates rhymes about a Punjabi elephant, an American spider, and an English ladybird beetle.
