Summary :

Not all of the 64 drawings in this volume are as inspired as "ANAMILLS PERFOURMNG A DIFIKLT FEET" (shown on the cover) but Steig's antic illos, coupled with the sheer ridiculousness of the project, make this funnier than you might think. A few of the cartoons and captions are memorably hilarious; e.g., as a little girl boggles at an enormous tulip looming overhead, the caption explains: "MIGH, O MIGH, IZ SHE SERPRYZD TWO SEA A FLOUR OV SUTCH GRATE SIGHS".

Except for the cover, the pictures are in black-and-white, the captions in red. The board cover is similar to the dust jacket, but black only, on yellow boards.

(I am categorizing this book as "Poetry" because I don't know what else to do with it.) (IBList reader synopsis)
