Books For Keeps
Divergent, playful, innovative, quirky, expansive, are just a handful of the many adjectives that spring to mind after a first perusal of this deceptively simple book of rhymes. Small in format it may be but each of the twenty or so offerings – an eclectic mix of traditional nursery rhymes including ‘Humpty Dumpty’, ‘Little Miss Muffet’ and ‘Baa Baa Black Sheep’, oddities such as ‘Daisy Daisy’, ‘Old Mr Match’ and the infant child-devouring ‘Grizzly Bear’ presented on that small screen, enlarge our perspective of the rhyme obliging the reader to look at it in an entirely new way. Thus “Humpty Dumpty’ is presented merely as T U M P H Y while ‘Pease Pudding’ is three white circles containing red matter, blue matter, and green matter with a spoon strategically angled on the third to become part of the text of the last line.
A fascinating book for all ages especially those with an interest in design and graphics.
