A Child's Treasury of Animal Verse

Mark Daniel, Author Dial Books $17.99 (16p) ISBN 978-0-8037-0606-4
This third volume of Daniel's collections ( A Child's Treasury of Poems ; A Child's Christmas Treasury ) of verse and reproductions of old illustra-tions lives up to the standard he set with the first two. Divided into ``Man's Best Friends,'' ``In the Farmyard,'' ``All Creatures Great . . .,'' ``. . . And Small,'' ``Feathered Friends'' and ``Smallest Creatures,'' each section offers wistful or joyful combinations of well-loved poetry and glistening illustrations. The mood is nostalgic but never dusty; poems by Lewis Carroll, Hilaire Belloc, Edward Lear, Robert Louis Stevenson, Alfred, Lord Tennyson and so many others have been carefully selected and ordered. In fact, the setting of each renders it vividly anew. All ages. (Sept.)
