Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "Webb and Ranson collect nearly 70 nursery rhymes from "old Irish song books, traditional nursery rhyme books and our own childhood memories." Many of the selections-"Old MacDonald," "Row, Row, Row Your Boat," "Hey, Diddle Diddle"-will be familiar to American readers, but the lesser-known entries are no less charming. McCarthy's illustrations bring a good deal of humor to the pages (the bird, cat, dog, cow, and horse seen inside the titular woman in "There Was an Old Woman" all share her wide-eyed expression), yet also conjure a bedtime feel when appropriate. A lovely collection that warrants an audience well beyond the Emerald Isle. All ages. (June) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
