From nonsense to lessons learned, these 45 rhymes include the quite well-known (Itsy Bitsy Spider) along with all the somewhat familiar (Hickety, Pickety, My Black Hen ). Scott Gustafson's unique style, influenced by legendary book illustrators Arthur Rackham and N. C. Wyeth, makes this a volume to develop to be treasured by children and illustrated-book lovers of all ages. The truly fantastic photos speak more than a thousand words as artist Scott Gustafson riffs in paint on themes present and imagined in each verse. Jack (Be Nimble) is a leaping cricket and Yankee Doodle a fun-loving chipmunk on a fullsize horse. Nursery rhymes are classic, and so are numerous the artist's interpretations. But other paintings are surprises, like an anthropomorphic baking bear, a pelican sea captain, and Peter Piper as a pug on two legs. Welcome to a world where"There Was a Crooked Man"is not about a hunchbacked senior but rather a madcap, double-jointed dandy who might be"crooked"in more ways than one.
