I rated the copy sent to me as low because the book had mold in it. The poetry and illustrations are wonderful. I got this copy for my mother. She gave me a copy when I when I was a child. Still love it. Not impressed by a moldy copy however. Not at all.

HASH(0x99d358c4) out of 5 stars "Tiger, tiger, burning bright..." Feb. 27 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
...Begins one of my many favorites introduced to me by this book. My mother (a librarian) first read poems such as "Wynken, Blynken, and Nod" to me from this book, and I continued to read them until a hiatus where a young man disdains poetry as not being macho. I rediscovered many an old friend when I started reading these poems to my own children. Now the book is in tatters (glueback bindings do not stand the test of time, especially not in dry Colorado), and I search for a replacement. If the reissue has indeed been 'sanitized' in the name of political correctness, then I fear much will have been lost, and I will be reduced to trying to rebind my tatters.

HASH(0x99d35d2c) out of 5 stars Not just for kids - a superior survey of classic poetry. Dec 1 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I have read this so many times my copy is literally falling apart. I am 37, and to this day entire phrases still ring in my head from classics like The Highwayman, Paul Revere's Ride and Jabberwocky ("beware the Jub-jub bird and shun the frumious Bandersnatch!"). In fact, when I took the GRE several years back, my acquaintance with this collection was of more value than my college literature classes. Not only for children - although I would buy a copy for every child I care about if it was still in print.

HASH(0x99d35ca8) out of 5 stars A sweet & comprehensive collection for young & old alike. Aug. 14 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
My siblings & I all grew up on this collection of poems and we each have our favorites. My copy is so old that it is literally falling apart and unfortunatly in storage. I remeber the Lorelei and the Highwayman. Not only was the poetry sweet & memorable but the art was captivating and I learned to draw trying to reproduce the the images. I now have a neice who I will pass this lovely book on to, (especially since my sister cannot remember the name of the book).

HASH(0x99d35c0c) out of 5 stars A Gold Mine Jan. 6 2000
By Ruthann Rawlings - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I fell in love with this book in my elementary library. I've paid enough late fines on it in the last 15 years to have bought the book several times over. It's here that I fell in love with Lady Clair and a million other classics that have resurfaced over and over in my classes in grade school and college. I want my own copy!

HASH(0x99d35f78) out of 5 stars Best collection of children's poetry Jan. 25 1998
By dtstroup@grove.net - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I am 45; I grew up with this book as our family poetry book-I am no poet but gained magic from having this book on the upstairs shelves to read when I wanted to--my folks didn't push it. I know there are many others but this one let poetry into the life of a hard core boy. I would like to get it for my son.
