A Little Book of Little Beasts
Simon & Schuster, 1973.
Illustrated by Peter Parnall.
These eighteen verses about moles and mice, shrews and raccoons
and other little animals that inhabit the woods and fields make
rhymes and rhythms and fine patterns on the page to delight all
readers, both large and small. They evoke the essences of the creatures
that children regard as familiars (and often, as friends), while
elegant and mischievous pictures by Peter Parnall further enhance
this small bestiary.
