Previously released titles are brought to new life. Mary Middling and Other Silly Folk: Nursery Rhymes and Nonsense Poems takes poems first published in the U.S. in 1932 as Fifty-One New Nursery Rhymes by Rose Fyleman and adorns them with new illustrations by Katja Bandlow. The artist outlines the pictures with Chinese ink then colors them in digitally, yet preserves a somewhat nostalgic look. For ""Rather Silly"" (""There once was a man with a queer sort of notion/ You could always be happy by keeping in motion""), she depicts a double-decker bus on cobblestone streets. .
